Product Description

"Go on a vacation," my Dad said, "It will be fun in the old west!" my mom said. Little did they know that we are on vacation in a nightmare! Everyone literally thinks we are in the old west, looking for gold and riding horses. They think this because, IT IS TRUE!!! Some how, some way we all got transported back in time to the Old West! The only thing is, I know we do not belong and it is up to me to get us back to our present time! I sneak into the Sheriff's office and find a locked chest. The locked chest says made in 2012, so I know it is from the future and doesn't belong in the past. I bet it contains what I need to rescue my family! It has a series of 5 locks. I better move quick before the Sheriff comes back or I may never save my family!

This digital breakout is intended for reinforcing comparing fractions, creating equivalent fractions, composing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions with LIKE DENOMINATORS and fractions as decimals.

In this Escape Room-like game, students will interact with a website to find clues and decode puzzles to unlock digital locks to BREAKOUT!

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

*Breakout codes and explanations 

*Student Sheet to Show Work

*Answer Key

To use this resource you will need to: 

1. Have access to electronic devices (desktops, laptops, Chromebooks, iPads, etc.) for students to use or allow students to use their own devices. The activity can be done using smartphones.

2. Have access to the internet.

3. Check to make sure that your school/district does not block out of domain sharing of Google Drive resources (Forms, Docs, Slides, etc.)

To test your school's security settings:

1. Share this "testing site" with your students. If they can see the testing site, then out of domain settings are allowed. Here is the Site: TESTING SITE

2. On the testing site there is a word that is hyperlinked. Students will click on the hyperlinked word and if they are allowed to make a copy of the resource that is embedded, out of domain sharing is allowed.

If both 1 and 2 work, then all of my breakouts will work in your classroom!

UPDATED 6-17-2019- School’s Security got you blocked?? I now include the links to the forms and puzzles so that you can create your own site within your school’s domain!!

Please see the preview file for additional information.
