Let's Plan an Escape!
Benefits of a Breakout:
A Breakout game is a perfect collaborative and kinesthetic activity that reinforces learning. Although it is considered a game, a breakout provides a hands on learning experience that all students can benefit from playing.
In education, one of our goals is to focus on the “Four C’s” of learning: Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity. The traditional teaching/learning process might encourage one or two of these skills at a time, but the breakout experience forces students to use all Four "C's" at one time. While working together in teams, students are forced to think critically about a problem; then communicate and collaborate with their teammates to creatively find ways to complete the given challenge(s). Since the Breakout game is custom made and aligned to the standards being taught, it reinforces the content for students as well.
