This Breakout activity is designed for Spanish 1 students, early on in the year, that have never done a Breakout activity before! Students will follow the story of Skyler as she goes to school, gets called out for an emergency involving her grandma, and eventually learns that she has the chance to go to Bolivia.

In order to complete this breakout, students will need to read clues in Spanish that include very basic, high frequency vocabulary in Spanish.

Teachers will need five locks (4-digit lock, 3-digit lock, word lock, directional lock, key lock) and a lock box in order to use this puzzle successfully in class. Alternatively, students could check the combinations with the teacher or the teacher could create a locked, digital breakout form. Having the physical locks is best because of the satisfaction and thrill of trying out a combination and watching the lock pop open!!

Detailed instructions for set up and game play are included.
