With their Legislative Branch Close Reading Quest in hand, students will move around the classroom practicing reading comprehension skills, answering questions, and finding clues to reverse the “Spell of Westham Mystique.” Great addition to your Branches of Government unit.
Topics include: Legislative Branch, laws, Constitution, Senate, House of Representatives, requirements
Students are invited to Wizardry School but must pass the final sorcerer test! This text-marking quest has students using their reading passage multiple times searching for evidence to each of the 20 questions (task-cards).
Students will work individually (or in pairs) and race to see who can reverse the spell first! A friendly competition always increases engagement. As students answer each question, they will need to underline or highlight where they found the answer in the reading passage. A four-digit code will be revealed in the end. If you prefer, you can set this activity up like an escape room.
