The Purim Breakout Box activity was a huge hit! I made a few modifications to some of the activities, but it worked out really well.
Have you ever gone to one of those Escape Rooms?! Instead of locking our students in a classroom, BreakoutEDU has students solving puzzles and challenges to get into the box - all centered around a certain theme/unit. BreakoutEDU: PURIM includes 5 challenges that review the story, symbols, customs and mitzvot of Purim. You can download the challenges here, but you'll need to supply the box, the locks and even the invisible ink and blacklight flashlight.
At a later date, we'll upload the video that introduces these challenges to your students.
Cleveland teachers can borrow the box, locks and all the materials to do these challenges! Thank you for downloading this Breakout Challenge, we'd love to have your feedback on this activity and let us know if you have questions.
