Students love these endless challenges to give while gaining extravagant benefits. This holiday giving resource for middle and secondary levels works well in any discipline which fosters creative thinking, problem-solving, brain based tasks, clear communication, innovation, authentic outcomes, team skills, evidence based learning, or language improvement.

Brain based tasks included here include 11 gift-giving tips to boost brainpower over any holiday, and earn extra points in class. You also get many materials to encourage students to discover personal strengths and give away gifts developed from their multiple intelligences.

Students enjoy the fun of making unique holiday choices that engage their strengths. Learners will experience how priceless holiday returns can come free – but can gain points for evidence of learning!

Learners who give all or several of the 11 gifts during their holiday preparation will gain more than the mental zip folded into this kit. They will gain 1 point for each priceless gift given.

Since brains reorganize with action, learners will jumpstart your gift- gala by using newly discovered neuro facts to ramp up free fun festivities to grace their holiday.

First, they will open presents of intuitive IQ to ensure they wrap and give their most confident, courageous, and ready-to-roll gifts. Then they will give gifts like the 11 listed in this kit - to launch mental fitness for genius takeaways.

The materials provide prompts and rewards to relate evidence of each gift given, through pictures, sketches, narratives, or video of the event. For each gift that shows evidence of being given, students will earn one point toward their assignment. 11 points are possible from this student-led task, and these points can be factored into overall grades as teachers and students see as fair.

Expect students to go after all 11 points and collect priceless gift-given stories that will increase their learning and leading skills in your class when they return.
