After recently attending a workshop on BREAKOUT EDU, I've learned that a few tool boxes, some different kinds of locks, magic ink pens, UV lights, and some carefully designed puzzles and clues can make for an engaging learning experience for my students. They love hands-on activities, they love to talk, and they love to move. All of these things make up what is needed to experience BREAKOUT: The Great History Escape! The experience would simulate the becoming ever so popular "escape room." The idea is that students work in teams, racing the clock and each other, to solve riddles, puzzles, and clues that have been carefully created to help them learn or review the classroom curriculum. In this case, it would be for 5th grade American History and 6th grade World History. I believe that the "BREAKOUT" experience is highly engaging and motivating and would offer my students another way to work collaboratively to solve problems. I also believe that even the most reluctant kids will want to participate. The activity is so engaging that most won't realize that they are learning! It's a win-win! Students will have fun, but at the same time, they are learning or reviewing important classroom material and learning real-world skills. Who knew learning history could be so much fun? Or any content for that matter.
