#BrainBreaks: The Power and Effect of Movement on the Brain

The average kindergarten student can last about 5 minutes before they need some sort of transition. By the time they reach adulthood, that range is closer to 18-20 minutes. Yet when you go to a professional development session, you spend a majority of the time “sitting and getting” rather than actively learning. This session will discuss some of the neuroscience around movement, the benefits of brain breaks on classroom culture, and a treasure chest of ideas to bring more movement back into your classroom. Applicable to all ages from 2 to 102.
