Media Specialist Mrs. Baker, Media Paraprofessional Tracey Webb, and Spanish teacher Mrs. Fugate collaborated to bring the concept of Breakout EDU to Senora Fugate’s 8th grade Spanish students. These 8th graders are first year Spanish students who were also new to the Breakout experience. In groups, they were taxed with working collaboratively to read Spanish passages and maps and to solve puzzles that opened a variety of locks. This Breakout was adapted from “Un Escape con Abuela” via Martina Bex’s website The Comprehensible Classroom and is also accessible via Teachers Pay Teachers. The students were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Despite frustrations, almost all the groups overcame the challenges and broke into their boxes! Here’s some evidence of how these kiddos surmounted the obstacles.
