In this one-time class, students will race to complete an escape room themed around Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As Kirby they will encounter characters from other Nintendo series, like Mario, Pikachu, and many others, in a journey to rescue the characters from the game's villains Galeem and Dharkon. I have created this activity in PowerPoint, and as students navigate back and forth through the different slides (or "rooms") they will encounter a variety of fun and educational challenges,...
Students will learn: -how to work as a team -how to use logic and reasoning to solve puzzles or win strategy games -how to work efficiently within a limited amount of time -how to think outside the box or find creative solutions to problems -how to count in binary (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc.), a unique way of counting that will allow them to count to more than five on one hand. (This part might be hard for very young students, so I don't recommend this class for any kids who are still learning the basics of counting or addition.)
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.
There are some slightly dramatic images of characters holding swords or shooting beams of light, and a pirate character holds a blunderbuss, but it is all very kid-friendly and not violent. While the Smash Bros. video game is rated for ages 10+, this class is fine for kids 7-12.
