Product Description

Why run an in-class escape room when kids could go in the hall to break out of a Maze?

This Analysis of Wordsworth’s “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” Maze is perfect for Earth Day.

It’s much easier and quicker than my other Earth Day Maze: Earth Day Kinesthetic Maze

This Maze analyzes the following in the poem: Rhyme scheme, similes, personification, the speaker of a poem, the Romantic poets, and a summary of the events in the poem.

___________________________________________________________

I love to let students move around when they learn, but I Do NOT love the loud and off task behavior that can come with kinesthetic learning. So here is a kinesthetic lesson without the "Krazy."

(Krazy = the potential for any of the following classroom management problems: opting out, letting others do all the work, loud and/or off task behavior, and having more fun than learning.)

*This product is a zipped folder with PDF documents.

*The product is fully editable so you can change wording (i.e. dependent vs. subordinate clause, class vs. period, etc.).

*Please respect my terms of use and buy additional licenses if you want to share with colleagues.

*Please also considering leaving a rating (and earning TPT credits).

What is The Maze you ask?

Why, there’s a blog post for that. Just click here: How to Get Students Up and Moving with a Kinesthetic Maze

For a free Maze, click here: Independent vs. Dependent Clause Kinesthetic Maze

In short, the students go into numerous “Mazes” throughout the year. Before our first Maze, we read a section of the book The Maze Runner. (However, you can certainly do the Maze without mentioning the book.)

I normally set up the Maze in the hallway, and students have to crack a code by finding clues on papers taped to the wall. Please note: this is NOT a real maze. The Maze is in their imaginations. In reality, they are in a much scarier place: a middle school hallway.

This is only one of the many kinesthetic Maze lessons I’ve created to motivate middle schoolers.

Give The Maze a try. Your students will thank you for it.

p.s. The first time you run a Maze it can seem intimidating. But the motivational and educational benefits of it are worth the learning curve. I promise.
