Brewer Middle School eighth graders tested their knowledge of the math curriculum by solving puzzles and gathering clues through digital math games and other activities in a Breakout EDU Kit.
The Breakout Kits provide students with an escape room experience in which they work as a team to solve problems.
Teacher Dawn Collins received an innovative teaching grant from the White Settlement ISD Education Foundation to purchase the kits.
"Too often, students show us they can be successful with a concept but when given a situation where they have to find a solution to a problem situation, they often struggle," she said. "This increases their ability to think critically."
