During a physical education unit, Shore Road students solved puzzles to unveil corresponding district core values and leadership principles.

Based on the popular interactive game “Escape the Room,” the students worked in teams to solve clues at various stations, including Lock the Clocks, Cargo Conundrum, Puzzling Puzzles, Square Your Squares and Book Buster. By working together to unlock the codes, the students revealed district values such as teamwork, synergy, sportsmanship and respect.

Physical education teachers Mallory Cogen and Brian Scott said the unit, which also took place at Winthrop Avenue School, honed the students’ sportsmanship and teamwork skills, while combining math and English language arts skills.
