Breakout EDU Have you heard about escape rooms? While we cannot build an escape room inside NPHS, we can play the next best thing--Breakout EDU!
Señora Pietrzak’s Spanish classes combined their knowledge of family vocabulary in Spanish with this hands-on logic game. Students had to use clues written in Spanish to figure out how to open assorted combination locks which led to further clues, keys, and finally the answer!
Groups from each class competed against each other to complete the Breakout in the least amount of time. It was a fun and unique day of learning!
