Second grade students kicked off their nonfiction text feature mini unit with a Breakout EDU activity. A witch cast a spell on their projects and locked them in a box. Students had to work together to solve the clues and unlock the padlocks. The timer was set and students broke out with 2 minutes to spare! This was such an exciting experience to witness. Way to go second grade!
