Participants had 40 minutes to get out of the room, navigating through numerous clues. When needed, each group received three hints from a student-coach (that was watching from another room).
Here's a quick visual look at the process:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.2.1.A: Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., gaining the floor in respectful ways, listening to others with care, speaking one at a time about the topics and texts under discussion).
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.2.1.B: Build on others' talk in conversations by linking their comments to the remarks of others
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.2.1.C: Ask for clarification and further explanation as needed about the topics and texts under discussion.
K-2-ETS 1-2: Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
