Product Description

Whoa?! Where am I? Last thing I knew I was sitting in math class and now I am on what seems to be a pirate's ship!! I look around the ship and everyone is busy mopping the deck, loading cannons and counting gold coins! In the corner of the ship, I see a treasure chest that says Multiply and Divide.... It looks like there is a series of locks on the chest.... I bet I have to use math in order to open that chest and get back to may math class! I better move quick, before I get caught and have to walk the plank! I have my heading, let's go! Oh no, I am already talking like a pirate, Savvy?! Argh I better move quick!

This digital breakout is intended for reinforcing Multiplying and Dividing Whole Numbers and Decimals

In this Escape Room-like game, students will interact with a website to find clues and decode puzzles to unlock digital locks to BREAKOUT of the Pirate Ship. All puzzles involve multiplying and dividing whole numbers and decimals.

What is a Breakout?

A breakout is a scavenger hunt-like game where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open a locked box. Breakouts can be done hands-on with physical locked boxes or digitally using a Google Form. THIS BREAKOUT IS A DIGITAL ONLY BREAKOUT, NO BOXES OR LOCKS NEEDED!

Why Use Breakouts?

1. Breakouts shift the ownership of learning from the teacher to the student.

2. In addition to the content knowledge needed to succeed in a specific game, breakouts require critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.

3. A breakout provides learners with many opportunities to fail and try again. Every unsuccessful attempt to open a lock forces students to reexamine their information and their thinking.

Why Use Digital Breakouts?

A digital breakout requires no preparation of materials, no time spent setting up, and no purchase of a Breakout EDU kit.

*Breakout website with links to all necessary text and media

*Breakout codes and explanations

*Student Sheet to Show Work

To use this resource you will need to:

1. Have access to electronic devices (desktops, laptops, Chromebooks, etc.) for students to use or allow students to use their own devices. (there have been reported issues while using Ipads with draggable pieces so please keep that in mind while buying)

3. Have a Google Drive and Login for the Google Drive

4. Check to make sure that your school/district does not block out of domain sharing of Google Drive resources (Forms, Docs, Slides, etc.)

NUMBER 3 and 4 ARE VERY IMPORTANT! CHECK BEFORE YOU BUY!

To test your school's security settings:

1. Share this "testing site" with your students. If they can see the testing site, then out of domain settings are allowed. Here is the Site: TESTING SITE

2. On the testing site there is a word that is hyperlinked. Students will click on the hyperlinked word and if they are allowed to make a copy of the resource that is embedded, out of domain sharing is allowed.

If both 1 and 2 work, then all of my breakouts will work in your classroom!
