Escape rooms are exactly what the name implies. They are rooms people are trapped in, and they must solve puzzles to eventually escape. Those puzzles can vary from cracking codes, or looking for certain clues. Today, the 5th graders had to work together through a virtual escape room. The 6 different groups had to work on tasks such as, deciphering secret messages and solving jigsaw puzzles. The whole point of this activity was to get the classmates to work as a team. To be successful in science, students must be able to work together, and what better way to build a team than with a game?
