Parts of speech are tough! No matter the age or ability level, students could use a parts of speech refresher. This lock box bundle does just that! Students will use their knowledge of parts of speech in order to solve clues and break out of the box. They will have so much fun trying to solve clues that they will forget they are working on English!
The best part is that you can differentiate for individual learners. Both the Parts of Speech High School Escape and Parts of Speech Middle School Escape are included here. They assess the same material, but the high school one is more difficult. I even took great care to try to make sure they both looked the same/similar in case teachers want to give students in the same class different escapes to match their ability levels. I worked it out so that both middle school and high school escapes have the same answers! This way, students won't even know they had different levels of escapes.
This activity includes all 8 parts of speech: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. The clues are fun, rigorous, and unique as well!
In actuality, you could have students solve the clues without having any lock boxes. Each clue has a picture of the lock they are trying to open along with the clues. Then, a sheet is included for students to write the code to each lock. Of course, the physical locks are really fun, but I definitely understand school funds are limited. This also works if you have only one lock box for the class to share or several lock box sets for groups.)
***This activity also comes with access to a Google Form so that students can put their answers into the form and get immediate feedback if they are correct or incorrect as long as they have a tech device to use. This way, you don't even have to set physical locks! The form is self-checking! YAY! (A link and a QR code is included so that you can choose what is easiest for your students to access.)
Materials needed (pictures of materials are included in the lesson):
3 digit lock
4 digit lock
5 letter alphabet lock
Box with a lockable clasp
brads (brass fasteners with 2 prongs)
This lesson has step-by-step instructions, hint cards, and well-designed clues to engage your students and get them to think critically.
This lesson may last 60-75 minutes or longer depending on how well students remember the 8 parts of speech.
