It has been a wonderful vacation! I visited the most amazing polar region and saw wonderful animals. But today something strange has happened. I woke up in the middle of no where! No family, no friends and no signs of a town or my cabin! How did I get here? I start walking south, because I know it will only get colder if I go north. The sky is getting dark and I can see a cave. May be I can use the cave as shelter for the night. I approach the cave very slowly and feel relief from the cold. I look around the cave and to my surprise I find a hibernating bear!!!! Oh man! I want to scream but know I can't. On the other side of the cave I see a metal door. It says "In case of emergency unlock this door." That is super strange but I am in no position to question it, I have to unlock the door as quietly as possible and as fast as possible! I have to get to work or I might be bear food!

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. THIS BREAKOUT IS A DIGITAL ONLY BREAKOUT, NO BOXES OR LOCKS NEEDED!
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.
Included in this Breakout Download:
*Breakout website with links to all necessary text and media
