Breaking Out Your Detective Skills

Help me give my students a Breakout EDU Kit for a learning experience they will enjoy and never forget.

My Students

My scholars are so amazing! I have been working with them for three weeks now and they are always eager to learn. I have an inclusion classroom with the support of our amazing SPED teacher. They collaborate with one another often and use a lot of Kagan strategies. Seven of my kids are in the Robotics club. My students are book-loving, avid readers, and enthusiastic learners. My scholars also enjoy working in teams and doing activities that involve inquiry and investigations.

My Project

The Breakout box is an exciting way for scholars to learn and interact with one another. We can use it as a project based study and we can incorporate all subjects with it. For example math skills, reading skills, problem solving, and calibration. It gives every scholar a chance to integrate their unique skills to help their teammates open the locked box through communicating and listening. The Breakout Box will give my scholars the opportunity to learn different skills in and outside of the classroom. These skills will give them a glimpse of how it will be in middle school, high school, and beyond working on a team to solve a problem.
