Using Breakout Boxes to Facilitate Learning

Have you heard of teaching strategies that use locked boxes to have student work together to learn material or practice skills?  Come to this half day workshop and see one sample using Breakout EDU boxes and a lesson designed for 5-8 graders based on a piece of children’s literature called Talking Walls.   In this example of a geography lesson, students will practice locating places using latitude and longitude, apply map directions, and read brief descriptions of world landmarks.   By working together, they will open the boxes and gain the stamp to their passport so they can travel the world.
