Digital Download


Students love to solve problems as a way to interact with lessons and texts! HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT

Problem-solving games and tasks in this resource teach learners to make more sense of isolated facts. How so? They resolve real life challenges that impact their lives! Problem-solving also engages multiple intelligences that get ignored in traditional settings.


Fascinating pictures of your brain’s activity, can now help us to add tools that move learners from one wave kind to another more appropriate mental activity for the task. For example, wide-eyed with beta movement at after listening to an iPod over lunch, students can actually coax their brains into quiet delta thought for solving problems related to lessons.

In 25 task cards in this popular series of problem solving challenges, students will alter mental activity to speed up thought by gathering ideas with peers, or slow it down as they convert learning into deeper insights.

Find links to research for some brain facts -- as all facts are described clearly and briefly. Do note however, that these student-ready materials are more about problem solving and are not intended to offer a lecture on the theories behind brain facts. However, no brain fact is used here that has not come with solid research, and any facts still disputed in the field have been omitted for the purpose of this active learning tool.

Display the poster included for solutions with the brain in mind - and you will inspire students' many intelligences. Then have them complete the survey with the brain in mind -- to learn what others think about their topic and its solutions.

Find additional related materials you'll enjoy, and additional information about music's effect on student creativity, as well as brain wave activity for higher level performance.

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.

Do follow my TpT site and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
