This is a digital breakout that focuses on early 20th century Immigrants, Segregation, Urban Life and Political Corruption. The concept is similar to the escape room, where students will have to collaborate in order to crack the codes to the five locks on the homepage in order to “breakout” of the activity. This is entirely online and students can complete this without having to move about the room. No additional resources needed. Students will work in groups of 4 or 5 to read through the site in order to gather information of New Immigrants, Urban life at the turn of the 20th century, jim crow laws, as well as political machines. This is done by navigating through the site that has hidden links and fun challenges that will ultimately lead them to the codes they need to find. Students love this and it's a great way to introduce or wrap up the chapter on the early 1900's.
