Mrs. Mowry collaborated with fellow teachers to create a Harry Potter-themed escape room for students. The escape room incorporated many academic standards that encouraged students to problem solve working together while implementing team-building skills. It was a great experience collaborating with multiple teachers to build a creative way to assess student’s learning. Several students from each grade level were chosen to work together to build upon each other’s strengths. Harry Potter is a favorite theme among many teachers and students. “Teachers were constantly dropping by to help me create different puzzles and provide supplies for the escape room,” says Mrs. Mowry. It was a great way to see both staff and students come together to create something fun and educational. Teachers are working together to create more escape rooms and other enjoyable, interactive experiences at the middle school in the future.
