It's no puzzle why escape rooms are so popular. Participants in this session will experience an escape room and learn how to create escape rooms collaboratively across all subjects (ELA, math, science, and social studies) in addition, a strong emphasis will be placed on ways escape rooms can be used to teach teamwork, perseverance, and problem solving while assessing content knowledge. Ashley Kazary and Elise Brown will be presenting this session on Tuesday, February 27 at our PREPS/MAPE conference! Don't miss out, sign up today!
