French Students “Escape the Room”

Madame Goddard’s Honors French 3 and 4 students participated in a “Breakout Edu” activity that is similar to “Escape the Room.” Students were given clues, puzzles, maps, line-up pictures, and devices (in target language) to help them solve the mystery of “Le vol au Louvre” (the Louvre Heist). It was based on the actual theft of the Mona Lisa in 1919. Students had to locate the painting. It was their team-building and critical skill solving activity on the last day of classes. Erik Magness has also used this activity with his classes.
