Heard of Escape Rooms? Well, there is a way to bring this fun, exciting, team-building activity in the classroom while teaching reading comprehension skills, social skills, team work, and abstract thinking. Clues and codes to locks and locked boxes are hidden in an escape room-type lesson. Breakout Boxes are an amazing high school tool that can be used over and over again for virtually any subject /topic and my previous students have absolutely loved participating! As a team, students work together to solve a series of riddles and puzzles to open locks on their boxes in order to win the game. And any subject or topic can be the focus of the boxes! The students work with their teammates to creatively problem solve to try to be the first team to open the prize box or get their box open. Reading the play Romeo and Juliet could have the students searching for a specific line that demonstrates the mood of the play which gets them to run to a specific locker in the hallway with a new clue taped to it along with a UV light pen. Or students could read a "boring" standardized exam passage and instead of answering the questions, they search the for a hidden clue, only to find that the UV light they found in the locker reveals the code to one of the locks.
