Looking for a fun way to review Chemistry concepts, while also building cooperation, communication, and perseverance? Try a breakout game.
These games are modeled after the popular escape rooms. Students interpret clues and solve puzzles in order to "break out". In this game, students apply what they have learned about atoms and the periodic table, including group and period numbers, protons, electrons, and neutrons, and atomic mass, in order to solve the puzzles.
The PDF file includes all 5 clues, set up directions, and hint cards. Just print, cut out, and go. It also includes a link to the fully editable PDF file, so you can adapt the game as needed.
This is a physical breakout game. The whole class needs one combination lock and box. I also include one stuffed toy (or other “prize”) in the last box. Each group also needs a lock box, a key lock and key, a 4 digit number lock, a 5 letter lock, a dictionary, and two envelopes.
