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!
“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
