Our school district school serves a diverse population that includes approximately 240 curious and energetic students. Approximately, 40% of our student body qualifies for free and reduced lunch and we have a significant Native American population. Our students have a strong desire to think and learn.
This project includes breakout boxes (and games) to create academic breakout box activities which will promote teamwork in a fun and creative environment.
Think of a breakout box activity as similar to an escape room, but on a smaller scale.
This project includes both breakout boxes and games. Breakout boxes require students to collaborate and work as a team. The boxes encourage discussion, teamwork, and critical thinking. Students will answer questions, evaluate data, etc. that will result in a series of locks being opened. The games will be used to provide downtime for students - perhaps after a long day of testing or on early release days.
Breakout Box activities can be created for any content area and can be used in a variety of ways; the options are endless.
The first breakout box activity will be to review reading genres.
The best part is that the breakout boxes can be used over and over with new material, questions, curriculum, etc. The breakout box works for a variety of grade levels as well. The games included in this project can be played in a short time period making them perfect for early release days or reward time.
