Maine’s Positive Story of the Day ~ Dayton Consolidated School ~
5th grade students participated in an escape room to celebrate the end of a reading unit. The escape room’s theme was ‘Home of the Brave’, the novel that the class studied throughout the unit. The ultimate goal of the escape room was to apply skills acquired in the previous months from all subjects, including comprehension of the story in order to escape. Teams also had to rely on teamwork, perseverance, and problem solving, which are important social emotional skills that are reinforced daily.
