The Chrysalids Game Bundle


The Chrysalids Game Bundle – A perfect addition to any novel unit!

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students become fully engaged with John Wyndham’s “The Chrysalids” by incorporating these short, fun games into your unit.  

Each game includes quality questions that check the student’s understanding and are varied to include:  

  • Important vocabulary and terms
  • Symbolism
  • Irony
  • Foreshadow
  • Literary elements
  • Plot 
  • Characters
  • Quotes
  • Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

The breakout rooms include clues and answer keys for the teacher. The teacher can give students hints if they struggle in their quests.

The games created are interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. Each game includes a different theme with different challenges. Some games have game-show quiz-style questions, while others are like mini breakout rooms. Even better, the games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work independently. The games also inform students of the correct answer to all questions, so they will learn the necessary information before moving on to subsequent material.

Students can play these games as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the games in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.  

I love doing this activity at the beginning of my lessons to review the previous chapter, facilitating discussions and class activities.

The bundle includes 320 questions in total!

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

FREE MATH LESSON – “FREE Mathematics Quick Reference for Homework Folders”

by TeacherWriter
3rd – 5th Grade

Do you wish your students could remember mathematical processes in a fun and easy way? This one-page quick reference sheet for math folders uses songs, rhymes, and tables to help your students remember math algorithms and math concepts.

It’s great for keeping in a binder or affixing to a homework folder, suitable for 3rd to 5th grades.

The songs, rhymes, and tables include these mathematical concepts:

  • Prime numbers
  • Order of operations
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Definitions of common terms and simple formulas for geometry calculations.

I used it in my 5th grade class to help students remember concepts they had already learned, and also to introduce new concepts. It’s also great for 3rd grade and 4th grade.


  • Mean, median, and mode are sung to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat.
  • Multi-digit multiplication order is sung to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
  • Prime numbers up to 50 is sung to the theme song for The Adams Family.

Mnemonic Phrases

  • “Please excuse my dear Aunt Sally” for Order of Operations.
  • “Does McDonald’s Sell CheeseBurgers and Shakes?” for the algorithm of long division.

I hope you find this little free resource helpful to you in your class. Thanks for downloading this product. I appreciate you!
