Breakout EDU in the Elementary Classroom

Have you heard of an Escape Room? If not, it is a room where you have to solve riddles, puzzles, and mysteries in order to "break" out of the room. Breakout EDU has brought a similar scenario to classrooms. The classroom teacher uses a kit with a variety of locks to create a similar situation for their students, except the students are trying to "break" into a box. The website has a bunch of team building mysteries or classroom teachers can create their own. The clues can be related to content that has been taught in class as well as the team building experience. Breakout EDU also has a digital version available.

Here is a video of some of my students "breaking out".
