My Students

Sometimes students are so busy working on skills that they don't get to experience creative math and science tasks in elementary school. Well, no more!

I work with some great 4th and 5th grade scholars that are excited to problem solve in unique ways.

My students want to complete challenging higher order thinking tasks that are fun and educational!

My students want to learn in an engaging way! Math and science are traditionally thought of as a paper/pencil subjects but it doesn’t have to be taught that way. My students like to move and explore math and science concepts in order to internalize what they are learning. They want to engage their original thinking through Breakout Box Explorations.

My Project

Breakout EDU Kits are the educational version of an escape room! These kits provide interesting ways for learners to solve puzzles, riddles, and study material while working as a team to unlock the box. Imagine engaging in an exciting team building challenge to unlock a box instead of sitting at a desk working on math/science!

My students crave unique learning experiences that challenge their thinking and team building skills.

The end goal of higher order thinking can be achieved through this exciting activity. The digital platform inclusion makes these two EDU kits into multiple activities for my 4th, 5th and Math Club!
