Breakout Attempt

6th Graders (Almost) Break Out!

Last week the 6th grade LA classes attempted their first Breakout, a team game where students have to break into a locked box by finding solutions to a series of problems. Students worked hard, but weren't able to break out this time. However, in the last class of the second day, one group came SO CLOSE! These girls opened all but one of the four locks on the box, but ran out of time to get the last one open. 

Now that the we understand the kind of problem-attack skills that a Breakout requires, I'm confident that a team will be do it the next time. Kudos to everyone for their efforts!
