Mrs. Csorba, along with several 4th and 5th grade teachers working in collaboration with the instructional coach, have challenged our Panthers with Breakout EDU activities. What is a Breakout? It is a game that engages students in critical thinking, problem-solving, troubleshooting, and working collaboratively. Students have so much fun that they don’t even realize how much they are using their brains!Mrs. Csorba has done Breakouts both digitally and with actual locked boxes. Take a look at some 5th graders completing a Breakout during WIN time.
Digital Breakouts were created with the instructional coach incorporating Social Studies content for 4th grade and Science content for 5th grade. Here you see some of the students who were able to solve the Wacky Weather Breakout in 5th grade, and some of the 4th graders who solved the Midwest Map Mess-Up.
Thank you to the teachers who welcomed the opportunity to try something new in their classrooms. These types of activities provide so much more learning for our students beyond actual content. Congratulations to the students who persevered and prospered!
