This can be the time of year when students begin to feel antsy, especially after a 3-day weekend. Encourage your students to get back on track and maintain focus, while channeling their energy into learning, with ClassOrbit’s Mental Energizer video. This video provides opportunities for exercise, which increases glucose to the brain, and, in turn, makes it easier for kids to learn. Energize your students' brains with these fun, easy-to-follow physical activities, and stimulate learning in your class. Just follow along to participate in three 4-minute routines.
Be sure to give your students multiple opportunities throughout the day to take physical and mental breaks. Powerful movements throughout the day can include having students cross their midlines (the center line between the body).
