Product Description

This listing is for an escape the room/breakout box activity that is a very brief overview of the six nutrients and MyPlate. This bundled activity includes all the directions and printables to complete the activity. This activity is meant for a high school Intro to Culinary Arts class, not for a nutrition class (it does not delve that deeply into the nutrients; please see below on what is covered). You will need to purchase supplies to complete the activities separately (the box, locks, etc). There is a document included in this bundle that has the cheapest places I have found to purchase everything.

Included in this bundle:

Getting Started & Set Up Folder

  1. Basic Breakout Box Info- has information on what a breakout box is and where to get the tools needed to complete the activity
  2. Getting Set Up- Tells you what you need to do beforehand for the activity (what to print, where to put clues, etc)
  3. Photo Directions on Setting Up the Box- A document that has photos and directions on how to set up the whole activity.

Day of Game Folder:

  1. Day of Game and Setting up: Tells you what to do on the day of the game to set up for the activity
  2. The Case of the Wacked Out Nutrients Intro PP- Powerpoint that you show to the students as an intro to the activity.

Clues Folder:

  1. Has 3 folders of the clues and the answer keys

Printables Folder:

  1. Has a folder full of printables for your students to use to take pictures of themselves after the game things like “WE BROKE OUT!”
  2. Congratulations print out- to go inside the box
  3. Hint Page- Document that has premade hints for you to give to the students if they use their hint ticket
  4. Hint Ticket printable
  5. Open Lock Placemat

Also included is a game "brain map" that shows the order of how the students should solve/play the game.
