Product Description
You have had a wonderful safari so far! It has been a once in a lifetime opportunity! You and your family have seen elephants, lions, giraffes and even wildebeests! At night, you can see a magnificent display of stars in the black sky. But this morning you awake to yelling and screaming to find your safari bus's keys and gas have been stolen! How will you get back to civilization?? You are lucky enough to be parked right outside a safari outpost that has supplies, gas and an extra set of keys. There is one slight problem though... There are a series of 5 locks on the door to the outpost! You must get busy unlocking these locks so that you can leave before a major storm system rolls in. You will have 45 minutes to unlock the door and SAVE THE SAFARI! Good Luck!

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
