Break In Template (Please read the terms and conditions (printed below and on the first page of the download) carefully before purchasing this product.)

Now you can make your own versions of my hottest selling item type. If you have previously (or later) purchased a break in, and have purchased this template, I can also create a copy of those break ins to send to you electronically, if you specify which ones you have purchased, and wish to be sent so you can modify specific clues to tailor them to your own classroom instruction. Or make a completely new one!

NOTE: Purchasing this product does NOT entitle you to a refund of other purchased Break In's. Purchasing this product DOES get you the ability to have a google form copy of them so you can modify them for your own classroom use ONLY if you have purchased the license for that particular activity.

In a Breakout room, people are locked in a room, and need to solve a set of riddles/clues in order to discover the key to leave the room. Since we can't lock students into classrooms in America, we Break IN instead. I have used break in activities for science labs with tremendous results also. This could easily be adapted to books, math, foreign language, or any other subject area you might want to apply it to. I'm a history snob at heart, so that's why all of these are history related so far...but Animal Farm is coming (ok, I know it's an allegory so it pretty much counts as history as well.)

This template includes:
*A Google Form Template/shell that you can use to create your own break in
*A 9 page instruction manual with color screen shots
*A 25 minute screen cast youtube link with my narration of how to modify the form

This template does not include:
*A template for accompanying graphic organizers
*Food, Provisions, or an Excuse for your significant other why you've lost the 3-6 hours it will take you to make your first break in (yes, they take that long, even with a good template)
*Guaranteed higher state test scores
*The pension your state has lost

Purchaser should have a reasonable familiarity with google, computers, and word processing. No special knowledge of Google Forms necessary. A gmail or school google account is required (but last I checked, the gmail accounts were free.)

Please note: This activity runs through a google form, so it is important that you make sure your students will have internet access. Additionally, due to the inherent risk of template corruption by sharing a single source template with every purchaser through a commonly shared link, you the .pdf will have my personal email address, for you to request for me to make a copy of the template to share directly with you to a designated email. This will be provided within 3 business days.
