My Students

The students at my elementary school are awesome! Even though their home life is usually somewhat chaotic, they come to school eager to learn.

As a teacher, I try to make learning as engaging as possible to motivate my students to do their best.

Student engagement leads to student achievement.

My students need to become true 21st century learners and problem solvers within our school and community so that they can become the future leaders of our city and country!

My Project

With using a Breakout EDU kit I will be able to build student engagement and excitement in my classroom. My students will also be able to build their problem-solving skills.

These kits provide a variety of ways to participate in classroom activities by using clues to solve puzzles.

The goal is to break into the box to get out an important piece of information.

The students will have to work in teams in order to solve the puzzles and break into the box. I will be able to use this strategy of engagement for all content areas. Please help me bring this resource to my classroom.
