FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE ESCAPE ROOM BELL RINGERS - ESCAPE THE OBSERVATORY
These figurative language escape room bell ringers are a new and fun way to challenge your students! At the start of the week, students are given the escape room back story where they find themselves locked in an observatory. Each day, they must work with their group for the first 5-10 minutes of class to progressively get closer and closer to escaping by the end of the week
This escape room has students attempt to open 5 journals and activate 5 switches to restore power and escape the observatory while demonstrating their knowledge of figurative language (personification, pun, hyperbole, and alliteration). Each of the daily puzzles bring students into a new journal where they uncover more clues and attempt to succeed in each task to have a successful escape.
Don't want to use this as a bell-ringer? No problem! Set up each of the days as stations, and it can easily work as a stand-alone escape room.
HOW IT WORKS
On Monday, read the back story for the escape room together and group students with those they will work with for the week. They then work together to complete the first part of the escape together! When they successfully escape, however, they will learn that they have to wait until tomorrow to get the next clue.
On Tuesday, Students move to the second task and find new clues and puzzles to help them move further towards their escape. This continues until Friday when they finally have the chance to escape the observatory.
The escape room tells a story all the way through the week that will fully engage your students and hook them into learning about the content,
The bell-ringers are designed to take about 5-10 minutes each. Setting up an entire escape room can be time consuming, but using them in bell-ringer format allows you to focus on one puzzle and one part of the escape.
