Third, fourth, and fifth grade TAG Math students participated in their first Breakout, The Spyder Heist, a math-themed game involving perimeter, expanded and written numeral form, subtraction, and coordinate planes. The entire class had to work together to problem solve and think critically. They had 2 opportunities to ask for a hint, and 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
Reading, Math, and ISP classes are working together to earn Breakout boxes. We have the ability to create a game in several content areas.
