HOMOPHONES ESCAPE ROOM ACTIVITY
Help your students understand and practice homophones with this highly-engaging interactive escape room / break out activity! Students should have an understanding of the meaning of homophone, and would also benefit from some pre-teaching with homophone examples.
HOW IT WORKS
Students work in small groups and move about the classroom to five different stations to complete puzzles and activities related to homophones.
In the first station, students find homophone errors in examples to reveal a numeric code.
In the second station, students read a story about aliens that contain homophone errors. commas. They insert the proper spelling of the homophones into their answer booklet to reveal a mystery word.
In the third station, students determine the proper homophone to use in examples and use that information to decipher a code using a cypher wheel.
In the fourth station, students correct homophone errors in examples and insert the proper spelling of the homophone to reveal a mystery word
The final station has students decode an encryption based on hidden symbols they have to find throughout the game to reveal a quote!
