Product Description
Lessons like this deepen math comprehension, bring students up and out of their seats, and promote healthy full-body movement in a fun, creative way. Students should be enjoying and maximizing their educational experience, and educators have a responsibility to provide opportunities for them to do so. As Carla Hannaford, Ph.D. states in her fantastic book Smart Moves, Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head, "The notion that intellectual activity can somehow exist apart from our bodies is...the basis of a lot of educational theory and practice that make learning harder and less successful than it could be." The opposite mentality, thinking that children are brains being carried around by helpful but relatively unimportant bodies, is what enables the injustice of enforced sitting all day. When the body is not recognized as a crucial player in learning, it is devalued and delegated to a chair. When we recognize that physical movement is vital for complete learning, we have no choice but to incorporate meaningful movement into daily learning, to take our students outside of the classroom and up a volcano.
