Library Breakout!!

Students in Literacy Studies recently participated in a library-themed breakout activity inspired by a breakout from BreakoutEDU.
八月份,世界语言与文化教师Kristine Jimenez分享了她在DCG基金会中获得的材料,and after trying to revise an existing Breakout to fit our DCG Middle School library,她慷慨地提出帮我们学校写一篇突破性的文章。A BIG"谢谢“对夫人吉米内斯——她帮助我们准备好突破!!

第一步?选择要使用的锁类型,并使用嵌入的组合创建线索。最后,we used five locks and provided corresponding clues.
Receipt link,,Letter link,,待办事项清单link (not pictured),Toondo0(搜索在线目录toondoo“)

Based on the information students received in their packets or found around the library,they would have what they needed to open two different number combination locks,a padlock with key,a color-code combination lock,and a directional lock.

•  to share and work as a team
•  to work together & think critically about possible lock combinations
•  to problem solve should initial combinations not open locks


Finally,the big day arrived and once in teams,学生们开始工作。Without a doubt,this activity is one of the most engaging things students have done in the library!!

Several groups were able to break out (or specifically,break *in* to the boxes after determining all combinations for locks.小组成员总是很兴奋,and we often heard exclamations of"We did it!""

More Breakout activities to follow!With the success of our first time out,很可能我们会尝试像这样的身体突破!At least one digital Breakout is in the works,too,so stay tuned!!
