Product Description
This digital breakout is intended for reinforcing plot and setting terms including plot, chronological order, flashbacks, flashforwards, foreshadowing, setting, mood, conflict, exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.

In this Escape Room-like game, students will interact with a variety of text and media, including one of Aesop's fables, a short film, descriptions of settings in excerpts of famous literature, and clips from Batman Begins and Toy Story 2. Students will use all of this information to find the codes that will unlock a series of locks. This unique activity will require students to think creatively and work collaboratively.

What is a Breakout?
A breakout is a scavenger hunt-like game where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open a locked box. Breakouts can be done hands-on with physical locked boxes or digitally using a Google Form.

Why Use Breakouts?
1. Breakouts shift the ownership of learning from the teacher to the student.
2. In addition to the content knowledge needed to succeed in a specific game, breakouts require critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication.
3. A breakout provides learners with many opportunities to fail and try again. Every unsuccessful attempt to open a lock forces students to reexamine their information and their thinking.

Why Use Digital Breakouts?
A digital breakout requires no preparation of materials, no time spent setting up, and no purchase of a Breakout EDU kit.
