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:TIKKUN OLAM (created in collaboration with the JECC Teacher Center and the Boston Diller Teen Fellows program) includes 5 challenges that center around Tikkun Olam and being a light unto the nation. You can download the challenges here, but you'll need to supply the box, the locks and even the invisible ink and blacklight flashlight.
NEW for 2019: Two alternate activities have been created and in the second directions document posted - these new challenges include: Study and Action and Isaac Luria's Gathering Shards. Feel free to mix and match these activities.
For use in: HIGH SCHOOL
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.
