Virtual Practice for a Breakout/Escape Room

Are you thinking about using a breakout/escape room experience to engage your students in collaborative problem solving and critical thinking?  I just came across an online activity called Science Detectives, created by the Arizona Science Education Collaborative, that walks students through several escape scenarios and teaches students how to think critically.  The activity also highlights the scientific process and thinking involved as students figure out problems.  This online activity is a great way to get students prepared for a live breakout room experience or to practice critical thinking skills if you do not have the physical space to set up a breakout activity.

If you haven't heard of a breakout/escape room experience yet, you should check out to see how educators are making physical breakout rooms based on curricular topics for their students.
