“Escape Room” has been all the rage for a while now. You’ve heard about it.
You play the “game” by paying an entrance fee to get locked in a room. Then you work together with your friends to find clues that will get you out.
Sound fun? Matt Scialdone and his English teacher colleagues at Middle Creek High School thought so.
So did the 4C Grant Fund. The Fund supports engaged learning that comprises Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Communication.
OK, so no one got locked in a room
Matt and his colleagues designed an activity where students have to unlock boxes instead, using clues based on literature they have read this year in class.
UPDATE: Your PTSA, through its STEM Grant Program, has helped purchased additional break out kits which will allow multiple classrooms to experience this new and engaging educational experience. Thank you for your generous donations and for supporting better education at Middle Creek High.
