Breakout sessionOn October 30th students at Staley Elementary participated in breakout activities with school Librarian Jill Schaal. “Breakout EDU gives participants the opportunity to work together to find and solve clues at each station around the room to open each of the locks,” said Schaal.

Second grade teacher, Megan Pokines classroom participated in the Halloween themed clues. Her students rotated through six stations: add a word; sequencing; parts of a number grid; money count; match the memory and jigsaw puzzle. Once the students solve the problem and unlock the box, then they rotate through another station, until they get to the final station.

Breakouts can be used to teach many different academic subjects areas. The games can be tailored. Mrs. Schaal designed these games with the Halloween theme. You can also make the clues as hard or as easy as you want depending on the grade level. Breakout EDU works best for small groups and helps develop team-building and critical thinking skills. Breakouts were held for 2nd through 6th grades.

The team that figured out the final clue was Dustin's group. The riddle was, "What did the scarecrow scare away?", Crows of course! They received the winning certificate and spider rings.
