Product Description
What a minute! I was just in math class taking a test, and now I'm somewhere different! There is doo-wop music, boys in suits and girls in dresses, and nobody has a cell phone! Where are the smart boards? Where are the computers? What is a slide rule? HELP!? It looks like I am gonna have to use the order of operations that I have learned in math class to get back to my current date and time.... It looks like there is a series of locks too.... Welp, I better be cool and get started so that I am not stuck in the 50's for good, that would be jazzed! I better move quick, I am already sounding like I'm from the 50's! Later gator!

This digital breakout is intended for reinforcing order of operations, identifying number properties, and solving multi-step real life math problems.

In this Escape Room-like game, students will interact with a website to find clues and decode puzzles to unlock digital locks to BREAKOUT and go on a Grand Canyon Adventure.

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.
