This document contains 3 separate worksheets (2 pages each) and matching answer keys to follow along with the three episodes in Season 1 of National Geographic's "Brain Games." Each episode is approximately 44 minutes long (DVDs available online or full episodes found on youtube or other video websites).
Episode 1 focuses on Optical Illusions & the 5 Senses.
Episode 2 takes a look at Attention.
Episode 3 focuses on Memory & Memorization Techniques.
Each worksheet has three parts: Before Viewing (activator), While Viewing, and After Viewing (closure). Each worksheet & video should take approximately 1 hour to complete. Questions focus from basic comprehension and fill in the blank notes of the video's narration to higher order thinking skills and self-reflection. These episodes and worksheets promote great discussion after viewing and application in students' lives. The worksheets contain 11-13 questions for students to reflect on and answer. Answer keys & youtube links are also provided in the document (but video links can be found elsewhere online or DVDs can be purchased).
These worksheets also make quick and easy sub plans and can be used at the very last minute! The videos are incredibly interactive, and the students have really enjoyed the various games and challenges found in each episode!
