  • Critical Thinking
  • Creativity
  • Collaboration
  • Communication
Students get to practice their problem-solving skills and cultivate "grit"...there will be failures, but students must perservere in order to succeed.

In library, our 4th graders were able to participate in a Breakout Box activity called "Locked in the Library".  They worked together in groups of 4 or 5, practicing their keyword searching skills, following directions VERY carefully and thinking critically in order to succeed.  

Watch Mrs. Coppola's 4th graders in action:



Advice from the students:

"Work fast but be accurate"
"You'll have so much fun!"IMG_9503"Work together and don't be bossy"
