     Breakouts

    I hope you and your families log on and try Breakout Edu.  There are Breakout activities for grades K-5. Each activity is marked with the appropriate grade level. 

    What is a Breakout?  I am sure your child will tell you all about how fun a Breakout is.  But from an educational perspective It is a great critical thinking tool.  BreakoutEDU is a game that will have your children thinking critically, problem-solving, troubleshooting, working collaboratively and having so much fun they won't even realize how much they are using their brains!

    You can click on the link and watch the videos on how to play a game or set up an account. I must admit that i was having a hard time with the 1st grade Breakout!!!!  You do not have to set up an account to play.  I have posted the answers down below these instructions.  

    Don’t forget to send me an email to let me know you have Broke out! Don't forget to tell me which game you broke out of!   Trust me the kids are really good at this! Have fun.
