Don't see a time that works for you?
In this one-time class inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, students will explore the wilderness of Hyrule, battle Calamity Ganon, and solve puzzles similar to those in the hit Nintendo game. I have created this activity in PowerPoint, and the students will navigate back and forth through the different slides (or "rooms"), working to complete all the challenges before time runs out. The class lasts 55 minutes, and after a short introduction students will have approximately 50...
Students will learn: -how to work as a team -how to use logic, reasoning, and critical thinking -how to work efficiently within a limited amount of time -how to think outside the box or find creative solutions to problems
I am a teacher, playwright, and published YA author, and I've previously worked for a high school where I taught writing and ACT/SAT prep. I've also taught English to younger children overseas, led educational events and programming at various theaters around Chicago, and taught reading, language arts, and educational escape room-based courses to more than 7000 elementary and middle school students online.
Students will have about 50 minutes to complete the escape room. There are no grades, and students who don't know an answer can keep trying until they get it right (or ask for help if they want it).
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While there are some references to swords, bows and arrows, and battling enemies, it is all Nintendo-themed and kid-friendly. (Calamity Ganon could be a little spooky-looking or unnerving to very young children, but not for anyone old enough to take this class.) The puzzles are also not stressful, and no students will be put on the spot to answer anything they don't want to.
