These Exercise Your Brain sheets are designed to get students to think deep to list words in categories. You may want to use these for a “show what you know” activity either before or after the outcome being taught. The lists will support many different learning areas. The lists can also be used randomly for a morning or afternoon ice breaker.
Challenge your students to focus, use their minds, and be original. The categories will encourage students to dig deep in a short period of time. Although an answer key is provided, teachers may want to join in the fun. Enjoy!
