This Mini-Escape Room is the perfect way to introduce your students to Prohibition in ELA or Social Studies. Students close read lyrics from four Prohibition-era songs, answer multiple-choice questions, and decode a secret quote. You can choose whether or not to hide clues in the room. It has been designed to take on-level 9th graders 30-45 minutes. This resource includes a Teacher’s Guide, extension activities, and an Answer Key. (grades 7-12)
Perfect for ELA or Social Studies. This resource is adapted from one of the tasks in my Roaring 20s Escape Room. If you're looking for a more in-depth introduction of the era, you may be interested in that one.
1. Song lyrics to four Prohibition-era songs
2. Multiple-choice question cards (demonstrating comprehension, analyzing literary devices, and making inferences)
3. Secret Quote
4. Writing extensions (either analytical or personal responses)
5. Student Answer Sheets
6. Teacher's Guide

This resource has wide appeal and placement in curricula, so it's up to you how long to spend on the activity. With 9th graders in a regular class, I'd plan on 30-45 minutes. You can abbreviate the amount of time needed if you allow students to pre-read the song lyrics as homework. As with any Escape Room activity, I recommend that you play through it on your own first before presenting it to your students.
