What will be the fate of Carlitos la Calabaza or Paco el Pavo? Only one group will get to find out in this exciting Breakout and you get to decide which story line you want to use.

This Breakout (which combines common Thanksgiving words in Spanish and English) with problem solving strategies to unlock boxes will have your students so engaged in solving the puzzle that they will forget they are learning!

This Breakout is perfect for any size class. It is designed so 1-4 groups of 1-8 students can compete. Each group will get different clues and the first group to unlock both of their boxes will determine the fate of Carlitos la Calabaza or Paco el Pavo.

*** If you want, you could rotate groups and each class could play this Breakout 4 different times and have different puzzles each time!! ***
