Take Active Brain Breaks

Sitting down for long periods can be hard for attention and focus. Boosting our energy can help the brain to perform optimally through movement. Physical movement engages the brain and can improve concentration. Taking active brain breaks can help students regain focus during long instructional periods. Three ways to take active brain breaks instruction include: 

  1. Play a movement game (online).
  2. Take a field trip outside to walk around. 
  3. Exercise in place.
