This is EVERYTHING you need for a novel study! Going on an extended absence? This is all you need! Excellent resource! I look forward to others from you!
This novel study has a LOT to it. Many different elements to choose from, or use it all. Easy to differentiate for your students. It truly is complete, no prep, print and go. The biggest decision is what to use!
This was so fun!! The escape room connect with a novel was so engaging for the students. I also enjoyed how I could download each part separately to use what I wanted!
This escape room was very thought-out and well planned. Lots of opportunities to entice all learners to participate. So many cool activities are included!!
My students really liked “Extreme Team Challenge”. They had to work together just like the characters in the book, and the multi-step element of it kept them engaged and moving forward.
