The perfect part it - the LOCK CODES ARE THE SAME! All that needs to be changed is the clues. This makes it simple to switch the language of the Breakout in between classes or preps!


Your students will LOVE this Breakout EDU so much that they will forget that they are even learning about El Día de los Muertos!

Do you have MULTIPLE PREPS or MULTIPLE LEVELS and want to do a Breakout with everyone, but don't have the time to change lock codes?


This Breakout is ideally designed for 2-10 students and will take approximately 40 minutes to complete. Depending on the language level of your students, the Spanish Breakout may take more time to complete.
