We’ve really been enjoying playing Breakout Edu games this past week to review our learning in grade two this year. The Breakout box is a student-friendly version of breakout or escape rooms where people have to solve puzzles to escape the room. In our Breakout games, the students had to use their knowledge from math, science, and social studies to solve a variety of clues that unlocked the locks on the Breakout boxes (which contained small prizes). So far the students have beat the timer on all our Breakout Edu games, which is no doubt a testament to both their knowledge of not only these subject areas, but also their problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking!
