Low Prep + Oversized Maps = MASSIVE Engagement

Something BIG is waiting for you!!!

This week, EMC² Learning is proud to announce the long awaited arrival of an all new lineup of resources designed to help teachers go “BIGGER AND BETTER” with student-centered learning than ever before! Say goodbye to boredom and wave an enthusiastic hello to the Territory Takedown collection.

In Territory Takedown, rival teams of students will compete to stake their claim onto an oversized game map by taking notes on all sorts of items related to your content. And the best part is? All you’ll need is a splash of imagination and a few printed sheets of printer paper. Let your learners take control of your classroom as you transform any ordinary lesson plan into a larger than life game of command and conquer!

Choose Your Favorite Theme

Stage an epic indoor snowball fight for the ages, square off to lay claim to pirate port cities in the swirling waters that surround an uncharted isle, or take the territory control battle all the way into cyberspace! With more than a half dozen themes to choose from, EMC² Learning’s Territory Takedown collection gives teachers the flexibility to put their own personal twist on a high-energy classroom reading and review activity with minimal prep required.

Go Big with Oversized Maps

Make the territory control action even larger than life with a giant-sized printable map to really help the activity feel that much more epic in scope, size, and impact! Oversized game maps are included with each variant of this fully editable resource to give teachers the power to make a massive impact with very little prep required.

Change The Game with Power-Ups

Keep the action fast paced and furious all class period long! In Territory Takedown, competing teams of students will battle to complete all kinds of close reading tasks with the hopes of earning the chance to lay claim to an unclaimed territory on the epic game map that lies before them. And teachers can join in the fun with a printable collection of wild card power-up items designed to keep players on their toes right up until the final bell has sounded.

The activities featured in this blog post are just a handful of the 600+ resources available in the EMC² Learning library. This entire library is available to Engagement Engineers and members of the Creative Corps, and is included with your annual site membership. We hope you’ll consider joining us as an Engagement Engineer to unlock a full year of site access. For complete details including our exclusive limited time offer for annual site membership, click here.
