Happy Hearts Breakout - a free digital game from www.breakoutedu.com

Story: When the jelly gets into the peanut butter jar, when puddle water splashes up on the clean, shiny car, when concessions are out of my favorite snack, when I wake up late and my day gets off track… the things that I find that are breaking my heart are not all that bad once I just get a start on a game that will break me free from my strife and add just a little bit of fun to my life! Can you check out the puzzles and use the clues to avoid getting caught up in woes and the blues? Just click on a lock and then give it a try, and watch as your broken heart goes bye-bye! When you breakout, screenshot your breakout sign (command +shift + 4) and upload it to Seesaw! (If you did not break out, add a to reflect on your experience.) Add a and reflect on what you thought about the Happy Hearts Breakout! Was it easy, hard, a little of both? Did you do it by yourself or with a friend? Feel free to use emojis in your response!
