Give students a chance to decode puzzles, move around the room, and read passages, all while actively learning! Students will work in pairs (or individually) and race against the clock. A friendly competition always increases engagement. No prior knowledge is needed. Each code will reveal interesting facts about the topic.
Hey there, I’m Lisa! I’m a curriculum developer, educator, blogger, restless dreamer, and world traveler. I’m also a side-hustling teacher with big dreams! My mission is to help busy teacher mamas go from anxious to confident, and from unnoticed to unstoppable. I love creating one-of-a-kind learning activities for reluctant learners. I truly believe the key to motivated students is challenging, interactive activities with a twist of fun!
