The increasingly popular escape room will be given an educational twist. This project will engage students while the collaborative elements help students develop social skills. The breakout box approach allows for the facilitation of games where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the locked box. These materials will allow us to build 6 breakout boxes. The students will be placed into groups of 5 and the teacher will create a series of challenging puzzles that relate to the curriculum topic at hand. Students will have to solve the puzzles in order to open the locked box. This project can be used to introduce a curricula related topic or used as a review. This approach transfers the ownership of learning from the instructor to the student. This approach requires critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. To escape, students will collaborate, problem-solve, use logical thinking skills, and access prior knowledge. Doesn’t that sound just like what we want students to do?
