Extension Activities for Greek MythologyReading about Greek mythology is so much fun, but you can help your students experience hands-on learning as an extension of their reading and curriculum studies with a Greek mythology escape room!
What is an Escape Room?An escape room is a digital puzzle with codes and clues that lead students to unlock secrets and find answers! Since students must read to solve the puzzles, escape rooms are perfect to encourage reading comprehension. There are escape rooms available for so many units in your 4-8 social studies curriculum. Now, the escape rooms have gone digital! You and your students will need a Google account and Jigsaw Planet to access the digital resources.
Greek Mythology Digital Escape RoomIn this Greek Mythology escape room, students go on a journey through two 360° VIEW rooms while finding clues and learning facts about Greek Mythology. They'll discover the secrets of Greek Gods and Goddesses such as Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Hades, and Athena. The Digital Escape Room includes 4 sets of activities, each beginning with a reading and a quiz. To scaffold instruction, there is a read-to-me option for the texts.
