Increase student engagement by implementing a breakout activity in your classroom. Students will work in teams to determine the meaning of different puzzles all associated with the content of the Progressive Era. This would be a great activity to either introduce or review a unit.
The activity is meant to be compatible with a BREAKOUT EDU kit. To use the breakout you will need all materials listed in the required materials section of the teacher instruction packet(also found in preview). All locks should be placed on the HASP on the main box unless instructed otherwise.
The download is in a zip file with three PDF's included.
