Most of my students made it out of the forest alive.
Watching their engagement as they immersed themselves in the breakout activity was thrilling. I was so proud of their problem solving and teamwork. Now the kids were chomping at the bit to share their experiences. So we charted advice to our future selves about things we can do to be successful during our next classroom breakout adventure.
It only took a second to see that these kids had tapped into something HUGE. Every bit of advice was also a REASON to engage in more escape rooms.
This is when I knew we were onto something with these escape rooms.Not only can they reinforce and/or introduce content, they do so much more! They tap into soft skills that we talk about and encourage every single day until we’re sick of ourselves. Or is that just me? 😏
