My Students

My students face many struggles. Many of them come from low-income backgrounds and over 70% of them qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. My students need a whole lot more than lectures and worksheets to prepare them for a successful future.

It’s my goal to prepare authentic learning experiences that give my students the opportunity to develop and apply 21st-century skills.

My students are the future and they need meaningful learning experiences and access to technology to help them overcome the challenges they face.

My Project

I want to incorporate an exciting sea exploration themed activity tied to some of the informational texts we'll and stories we'll be studying. My students will be doing several escape room type puzzles and challenges tied to the stories and articles we'll be reading.

My students will work in teams to locate hidden clues on the compass, treasure box, journal, and bottle in order to uncover the messages in the small bottles, map, corks, and rope.

They will have to find invisible messages, decipher codes, and work in teams to follow the clues to find ways to open the locks to reach the next stage of the puzzle.

As they work to accomplish their tasks within a limited amount of time, each of the 5 teams will have to take on a different responsibility in order to solve their part of the final puzzle and unlock one of the 5 different locks and complete their mission as a class.
