I’m sure by now you have heard of the latest group outing craze “Escape Rooms”. If you haven’t, it’s basically a room that you get locked into with a group of people. In the room there are clues that you need to find and sort out to help you unlock more clues that will eventually help you escape. You get a certain time limit to figure out all of the clues to help you. This latest craze has now entered the classroom! Read on to hear about the benefits of breakout games in the classroom and how I use this tool with my students.
