Goal

Get students communicating, collaborating, using critical thinking skills, and being creative to review and reinforce classroom standards through escape room challenges in the classroom. By the end of the school year, students will increase their critical thinking skills through engagement as measured by successful completion of the escape room. 

 

What will be done with my students

With two lock boxes the class can be divided into two teams and given a challenge to solve while racing against the clock. The lock box set up can be used with different breakout games set up to introduce, reinforce, review and even test classroom content. Students will also learn to collaborate, communicate, and use critical thinking skills in the process of solving the clues with UV pens and UV lights, puzzles, questions and more. Eventually students will succeed in opening each of many different locks on the box to open it and find the final clue to escape the room.

 

 

Benefits to my students

Gamification of the classroom gets students involved with the material in an exciting and motivating task. The lock box gives students a chance to fail forward and learn to try again when the first try fails. It not only teaches content, but develops 21st Century skills students will need. 

 

Describe the Students

100% of my students receive free lunch. 30% of my students are ELLs, and 21% are ESE. 100% of my students are below level for reading.
