This review activity for Lord of the Flies by William Golding is a series of puzzles covering plot, character, figurative language, conflict, and theme. You can present this as a Breakout Box (groups work at their desks) or as an Escape Room (groups seek clues you’ve hidden in the classroom). It has been designed to take 30-45 minutes. This resource also includes a complete Teacher’s Guide (set-up, printing checklist, differentiation) and Answer Key. (grades 7-12)
1. Four core tasks (plot, character, close reading passage, and an important quote with a writing extension activity) with instructions and clues
2. A *secret* final task that flips the tables on your students and requires that they work as a whole class — this underscores the themes surrounding collaboration & competition in the novel
3. Five station cards
4. “Oops! You Let the Fire Go Out!” cards (for optional increased difficulty)
5. Student Answer Sheets
6. A full Teacher’s Guide with set-up options, a printing checklist, and an Answer Key
7. A poster for your door. 😉
