The French Revolution Breakout
This breakout is designed around South Carolina Standards 7-3.1.
“The French Revolution has just begun. To save your friends, and your own head, unlock the digital keys and escape the guillotine! Follow the picture links and videos to discover clues and the KEYS to the locks below.”
The students will follow the the picture links to clues and additional picture links or videos. They will read the attached website or watch the attached video to solve the clue. Once they’ve figured out the clue, they type the answer into the digital lock. If the answer is incorrect, the key will turn red and say “Still Locked!”
The students will need access to a computer, device, or chrome book. They don’t need to have the sheet below to keep track of their codes, but I recommend it. If the links don’t open in a new tab, the students will lose the codes they’ve already figured out.
After the student has unlocked all of the digital codes, a final code will pop up! This is the code I have on a real locked box in my classroom. In that locked box I have prizes like pencils, candy, etc. It is not necessary to have that last code/lock box, but it makes it a little more fun. You wouldn’t have to have a lock box or this final step.
Some schools districts have blocked Google Sites that are not created within their own district. This is typically only an issue if students use Chromebooks. Students can still access the sites in a computer lab. You may want to check with your district prior to purchasing. However, if you find yourself in a situation where this breakout is blocked, please message me on TPT and I’ll try to help you gain access.
