I am all about problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration happening in my classroom! So, when I found out about this incredible program called BreakoutEDU, I was immediately hooked!
How does it work?
I chose to challenge my classes with The Spyder Heist.
To bring this engaging, challenging, problem solving "game" to my classroom, I had to go though the steps outlined in the Get Started section of http://www.breakoutedu.com/beta/ .
Once, I received my breakout box, it took some time to set up the challenge. There are instructions to follow to walk you though set up, but I was glad I started working on this about two weeks out to ensure I had everything I needed and all was working according to plan!
It was finally time to play!
- 1st period - only one lock to open when time ran out - They ALMOST escaped!
- 2nd period - only one lock (different from 1st) left to open when time ran out - They ALMOST escaped!
- 3rd period - only one lock remained - the ALMOST escaped!
