Tagxedo Creations by Fifth Graders

Our fifth grade students discussed and wrote about current and future goals.  Students followed some general instructions. They shared hobbies they were interested in and passionate about such as music, art, gym, etc. Afterward, they used an app called Tagxedo, which turned words from famous speeches, news articles, slogans, and themes into a visually stunning word cloud.

Breakout EDU

We love Breakout EDU!!! My students had so much fun solving puzzles, riddles, and word problems to escape the room.  It encourages critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. Breakout EDU offers both print-outs and digital resources to prepare games.
