Help Fourth Graders Breakout of Traditional Learning!
My students need locks, hasps, and lock boxes to create a wonderful breakout box experience. The added level of flash drives and combination locks will increase their critical thinking and problem-solving skills!
Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds and countries. Our students are the perfect balance of collaborative and kinesthetic, but in our grade we have upwards of 31 students in a classroom. Those numbers can create an imbalance! Combine this with the sheer number of different learning styles, we are starved for STEM materials!
We want to create and support a learning experience that ALL of our students can benefit from!
We hope you can donate to provide needed materials to support collaboration, content, critical thinking, communication and creativity!
The fourth grade teachers will combine all of these items including hidden keys, secret codes and combinations, and appropriate puzzles or mystery items to help each team unlock their box.
As teams progress through the challenge, they will use the initial challenge clues to lead them through the progression of puzzles to unlock the box.
These activities will create ultra-engaging games for students to teach teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking and troubleshooting by presenting our students with challenges that ignite their natural drive to problem-solve.
Pushing students beyond what they believe their limits to be is the first step in developing a world of creators, collaborators, critical thinkers, communicators...all while keeping the content relevant.
