Product Description
When students’ minds become overloaded - take a break to refocus their thoughts on something completely different to re-energize them for the next activity.

This product is also available in (1) my bundle Teacher's Toolkit Bundle - and in (2) my mega-bundle ELA Mega Bundle Collection. Check them out now for some great deals!

This resource provides 47 pages of 12 detailed, how-to brain breaks with all the resources you'll need (and then some) for your middle or high school class room. Perfect for all subject areas! Some of these are designed to invigorate and some to relax teen minds.

Brain breaks change the way their brains are functioning – they don’t stop the mind from functioning (in case you need to make that clear). Teens want to understand the relevance of what they are doing, so understanding the purpose of the brain breaks gives them reason to buy-in and to know how to apply them.

These brain breaks can be used before, during, or after a lesson to enhance the learning experience. You can make them last for just a couple of minutes or broaden them to a mini-lesson. Some can be used over a few times to become a regular treat kids can look forward to. Also, use these as a springboard to think of extensions to create some of your own customized brain breaks.

For younger kids, brain breaks tend to focus on motor movement. More advanced teen minds respond to a broader range of activities, plus many teens are so self-conscious that asking them to do physical movements can be counterproductive. If physical movement is involved, it generally needs to be the right kind so as not to be potentially embarrassing to them.
