Brain Breaks for your older students are physical activities that give your students a quick break so they return to the lesson with a better focus.
 No prep: Just print and cut
 Less than 4 minutes
 Easy for Teacher and Students
 Stress Reliever

If a few of your students are hesitant to join in, offer to give the best participant one extra point on the current assignment. After the initial motivation, you will notice that students enjoy- and request brain breaks.

Option 1 (SLIDES 4-10) Cut and pass out cards to individual students (four to a page).

Option 2 (SLIDES 11-38) Show the entire class the PowerPoint slide.

There are 28 brain breaks.

Cards 1- 21 are for individual student movement.
Card 22 requires 4 paperclips for each student.
Card 23 requires an item for each student such as a pencil or piece of paper.
Cards 24-28 are whole class activities and require teacher interaction.
**You may want to listen to the pronunciation of the word on Card 26 before you begin (the pronunciation is available on Dictionary.com.)
