This activity is perfect for reviewing your Romeo & Juliet unit. The four tasks cover plot, characters, quote identification, and a close reading. Students use the “keys” from these four tasks to solve the Secret Quote. This is the fully-digital version. It has been designed to take 40-50 minutes. This resource will include a complete Teacher’s Guide, extension activities, and an Answer Key. (grades 7-12)

Praise for the paper version:
“This is literally the BEST thing I’ve purchased on TPT! It is well put together, the instructions are easy to follow, and I love that there are multiple options for using it. I also loved that the tasks varied in skill-level, so there was something accessible for all the students. My Honors 9th graders ate…it…UP! It was fun and exciting, and every single kid was engaged and participating. It provided an excellent review of the main plot and elements of the play, and it made me want to make Escape Rooms for all the novels/plays I teach. Or you can do it – I’ll buy them all! 🙂 Thank you for putting out a quality product that is engaging, rigorous, and fun!” -Thompson & Thompson
“This was the best TPT purchase I’ve made! The students were engaged and focused; everyone was involved, and the activity went so smoothly! As a prize for first place, I offered 3 AMA (Ask Me Anything) for each member on the final exam; second place got 2 AMA; third place got 1 AMA. You would not believe how much this competition motivated them!” -Mary B.
“My students loved this activity! I set it up like an escape room. I hid the tasks around the room for each group. They would earn the clue by correctly finishing a task. Normally my students complain about station work, but changing the process made a world of difference for them! I loved watching my normally “too cool for school” boys excited and engaged!” -Carrie R.
