Product Description

This is a Breakout game for Banned Books Week. You must have a kit from Breakout or your own kit to set this up. The books mentioned in the game are from the list of the 2017 Banned Books but students do not have to have read books to play the game. The game summary to read to students is as follows:

A new copy of The Hate U Give was presented to your school librarian. A parent in the community heard that the book is on the 2017 list of Banned Books in America and can’t believe your principal would allow students to read a book in school with drug use, profanity, and offensive language. Your mission is to break into the secret box and save the banned library books from your school that are being hidden before they can take those away as well because you believe that students have the freedom to read what they chose. You “SPEAK OUT! For Banned Books.”

Please email me at if you have any questions about the game.
