If you like the idea of escape rooms or break out boxes, this escape challenge is for you! This print-and-go challenge day lets students work in groups to unlock seven puzzle locks to rescue their friend that is trapped in a military bunker.
Lock 1: Students conjugate present tense verbs in a letter from their trapped friend to solve a 3-digit padlock code.
Lock 2: Students answer multiple choice questions about interrogatives to solve a 5-digit padlock code.
Lock 3: Students re-write direct object pronoun sentences to solve a 5-letter padlock code.
Lock 4: Students answer questions about affirmative tú commands to color in a stenography image.
Lock 5: Students translate dates and numbers to find a password code.
Lock 6: Students answer saber vs conocer questions to fill in a QR code.
Lock 7: Students complete a boot verb puzzle to by-pass the retinal scanner.
This file includes everything you need in editable and PDF versions - 7 lock puzzles, answer keys, a cover sheet, instructions for the teacher, and an optional expert level that incorporates invisible ink and black lights if you really want to go all in. But you could make copies before first hour and run this all day - no need to purchase actual padlocks or boxes or anything!
My hope is that, whether you use Avancemos, Realidades, Exprésate, or another textbook, this activity will fill needs of any Spanish 1 class. But if these topics don't align with your Spanish 1 topics, you could also consider purchasing the Escape Challenge Bundle
and you could swap activities from other levels.
If you are teaching Spanish 1, this product is also available as part of my Spanish 1 Mega-Bundle
These activities primarily focus on the ACTFL language comparison, interpretive communication, and interpersonal communication standards.
Going paperless? You can use the PDF versions in the Notability app for students to add their writing or upload the editable version into Google docs to access on a Chromebook.
