How to make learning about World War 1 more engaging? Experience a Breakout game. And that’s exactly what Lani Kasten had her seventh grade social studies students doing after school Feb. 15th. A Breakout game for school purposes involves solving a series of clues that allows one to open locks on either a computer or a physical box. Canton Middle School students had participated in a breakout game earlier in the year but this time there was a new twist. Students were encouraged to bring their parents for the activity and together they would solve the clues based on their knowledge of the subject. Parents were impressed to realize how much their child had learned on the topic of WW1 and students enjoyed working with their parents to reinforce what they had been studying.
