Sixth-grade students at Pulaski Street Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District recently participated in a “breakout” lesson designed by their science teacher, Kristen Realander. They were required to use their problem-solving and collaboration skills, as well as their creativity and knowledge of lab safety and measurements, to gain access to lockboxes by solving a series of problems. Breakout lessons, said Realander, engage students and get them excited about learning.
