You will get:
1 PowerPoint with 15 slides to promote whole group moving and reviewing

These sets include:
14 Yoga poses that can be done with regular clothes (and dresses with a little modification)
14 different psychology connections:

Here are some highlights of the ways to use this lesson:
1. A no-prep review for IB Psychology, AP Psychology or any psychology class
2. A whole group brain break
3. Small group discussion starters
4. A fun way to wake students up
5. A fun way to help students focus
****Note****The poses in this lesson are easy enough (or can be modified enough) that most all students and teachers will be able to participate. However, this lesson DOES require that teachers have a certain personality. Don't be afraid to laugh through some of these poses with your students when you need a light-hearted moment. Or, turn on some yoga music (there's a Pandora station for this!) and lower the lights for a more serious think time.
Check out the preview for an overview of what you will get! I hope that you and your students love this lesson!
