I am in need of sets of locks and materials to put together Breakout boxes for my students. I am choosing to make my own for a fraction of the price compared to official Breakout EDU kits. I am requesting supplies for 6 boxes so that I could set up for both my 5th grade and 6th grade classes on the same day. I am providing what I can afford to put these kits together but I am in need of some assistance. A breakout is similar to an escape room. I design puzzles and riddles that review concepts and students work in teams to solve them. I have tested this out with borrowed kits and my 6th graders loved every minute of it! My students were motivated to review their notes to help solve problems. All students were able to think critically and problem solve with their team. Students who previously didn't like science class said they loved the activity. In order to set it up more often, I would like to set up my own kits. You wouldn't just be helping my classroom, you'd be helping multiple classrooms as I would then loan out supplies to my fellow colleagues and network of teachers along with showing them how to implement Breakout into their own classrooms.
