Breakout of Monotonous Learning with Breakout EDU

My students need 6 Breakout boxes from Breakout EDU in order to turn our classroom into a breakout room that will encourage small group collaboration and critical thinking while motivating students through friendly competition.

My Students

My students are gifted learners that have a unique way of looking at the world.

We are all gifted...some of us just open our gifts earlier than others!

My students have an ability to see beyond the obvious. This allows us to travel to places beyond any lesson plan or curriculum. My learners are eager to explore the world beyond the walls of our classroom.

This diverse group of learners has the ability to one day change the world! My goal is to ensure they have the tools they need in order to be successful.

My Project

Turning our classroom into an escape room will be a natural motivator for my advanced learners. Students will rotate through targeted learning stations while engaging in friendly competition.

Breakout boxes will provide my students with authentic and engaging classroom experiences that challenge them both socially and academically.

While attempting to "breakout," students will be reading, thinking critically, solving problems, creating, and collaborating with peers. Students in grades k-5 will begin to grasp the importance of kindness and effective collaboration as groups will be unable to "breakout" without these skills.

These boxes will leave my students longing for more learning. These boxes will be an important asset in motivating my high ability learners.
