Tu B'Shevat Breakout Box


Teach Tu B’Shevat through interactive puzzles based on the popular breakout.edu model. These puzzles empower students to explore four Tu B’Shevat themes: the Talmudic tale of Honi HaM’agel, the biblical practice of Tu B’Shevat, the benefits derived from trees, and fruit trees that grow in Israel.

The breakout.edu model encourages students with complementary strengths and skills to work together to solve puzzles and gain knowledge.

Best suited for 4th - 8th grades.
