Bonus: crosswords benefit your brain: strengthen vocabulary, improve memory, develop problem solving skills and enhance attention. Puzzle has two versions: with and without a word list and includes answer key.

BONUS: Paper Foldable - besides being fun to make, when you create foldables, you are activating your whole brain. It has many benefits like developing eye hand co-ordination, attention to detail, perseverance, spatial skills, reasoning and sequencing skills. According to the latest research on the brain, when both hands are engaged, motor impulses activate the language portion of the brain.

Thinking Maps are visuals that students use to graphically organize ideas and enhance their learning. These visual model includes eight different organizers with a different purpose:

• Circle Map - used for defining in context

• Brace Map - identifying part/whole relationships

• Tree Map - classifying and grouping

• Double Bubble Map - comparing and contrasting

• Multi-Flow Map - analyzing causes and effects

• Bridge Map - seeing analogies

• Bubble Map - describing with adjectives

• Flow Map - sequencing and ordering

Educators can use these visuals to teach across the curriculum. Students improve complex thinking skills and demonstrate increased student comprehension. The benefits of visual tools have been demonstrated through research and class observation. IMPROVES NOTE TAKING & HELP STUDY SKILLS.
