Be the one to make a difference in your students' thinking! With more than 100 games to choose from, Brain Food
is your one-stop source for exploring the fun in learning. This compilation is filled with new, as well as traditional, brain games, and most need little more than paper and pencil to get you started. Each game is classroom tested and tailored to encourage cooperation and teamwork, as well as deductive logic.
The book includes
- word games,
- math games,
- logic games,
- memory games, and
- much more!
One exciting aspect of this book is that it has a bit of an international flavor. It is filled with fun games from around the world that challenge and stimulate young minds. From the Japanese strategy game Hasami Shogi, to the traditional African game Wari, to the deductive game Witch Hunt, to the word challenge Wordbuilder, these mind-stretching tools encourage complex thinking skills.
Games by their very nature require thinking. With Brain Food
you'll get teaching tools such as Alphamazement—a game of strategy that challenges both visual and verbal skills by having players connect letters of the alphabet in a zigzagging maze. Or, try the traditional Maori game Mu-Torere to enhance visual and mathematical skills.
