IMYC Entry Point - #3

On Tuesday, 14 January, middle school students had their third Entry Point of the year. The purpose of the Entry Point is to introduce a new IMYC unit of learning in a fun, hands-on and exciting way, as well as to invite students to begin thinking about the BIG IDEA for their next unit.

Grades 6 and 8

 

Grade 6 Unit: Adaptability

Big Idea:  Adaptability is demonstrated by the ability to change, alter or cope with new environments or circumstances.

Grade 8 Unit: Challenge

Big Idea:  Facing up to or overcoming problems and barriers increases possibilities in our lives.

On Tuesday, 14 January the Grade 6 and Grade 8 students had the opportunity to jump into their new IMYC big idea together with a fun and exciting field trip! 

The students biked together to the Escape Room Berkel & Rodenrijs. Once there, they were then split up into groups to work together while adapting and challenging themselves in three different escape rooms.  Their goal was to find clues and information to escape the rooms within an hour. Although not all groups managed to escape, all students enjoyed the experience very much. One group even experienced escape room success with extra minutes to spare! 

 

Student Highlights:

“The escape room was fun and very tasty (we did the chocolate factory room), there were a lot of scary things and a lot of adventure.” --- Diego

“In the escape room we learned to collaborate with our teammates and adapted to each of the clues and rooms that were provided.” --- Vera

“In the escape room it was dark and it was a little scary but it was a great experience. It was also cool to collaborate with our peers.” --- Dean  

“I did the scary escape room.  When things are more scary, it is more of a challenge because then it messes with your mind as your human instincts tell you not to do it.” ---Andre

“Biking to our field trip was a good choice as we got to be more active and biking is more of a challenge than just sitting in a bus.” ---Dominique & Meredith

G6&8 Escape Room #1 G6&8 Escape Room #2

Grade 7

 

Unit: Relationship

Big Idea: Every individual thing affects and is affected by other things. 

Students had to put together 10 different jigsaw puzzles and each group solved one jigsaw puzzle at a time. Each jigsaw puzzle had a picture that relates to the relationship unit on one side, and a word from the Big Idea on the other side. 

After completing the jigsaw puzzles, students had to write down the words that they revealed from the jigsaw puzzles. They then pieced the words together into a sentence and figured out what the theme for this unit is. Students completed the jigsaw puzzles and worked out the Big Idea for the unit within the allotted 90 minutes. They had fun and found it challenging.
