The day starts off as any other. I paid to go scuba diving while on vacation. I have been many times before so I swim away from the group and go off in search of underwater treasures. I swim along and see many wonderful and amazing creatures. Being alone in an underwater world feels almost magical . As I am swimming along I notice something shiny in the sand on the bottom of the vast ocean. I swim down to it and notice the shiny object is a lock, which is attached to another lock, and another lock, and another lock and that lock is attached to a final lock, which is located on a magnificent treasure chest! I cannot believe my own eyes! I look around and their are ancient clues that look like patterns I remembered learning about in school. Additive and Multiplicative Patterns! I remember my teacher teaching these patterns like yesterday! I get to work but notice that I am almost out of oxygen! I must work fast in order to save myself and unlock the chest! "You must FOCUS! and HURRY!" I say to myself.
This digital breakout is intended for reinforcing Additive and Multiplicative Patterns. This download contains all that is needed to perform an amazing digital breakout in your classroom!
In this Escape Room-like game, students will interact with a website to find clues and decode puzzles to unlock digital locks to BREAKOUT!
The TEKS seen in this breakout are:
5.4C and 5.4D
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
