About the Engage the Brain SeriesThis practical resource gives teachers the tools they need to plan lessons correlated to the way the brain learns best. Based on tested, research-based strategies presented in Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites: 20 Instructional Strategies That Engage the Brain, this book offers a variety of language arts activities that incorporate games to help students make sense of and reinforce learning. These activities give students the opportunity to not only play but also construct and design a variety of games, greatly increasing brain connections to the content. These strategies allow students to master curriculum objectives while actively rehearse information in an engaging, non-threatening atmosphere, which makes a real difference in students' energy, motivation, and achievement.Engage the Brain: Games, Grade Five contains games based on national academic standards for language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, art, and music. Some games are based on old favorites (such as Simon Says, Bingo, Tag, Scavenger Hunt, Relay Races) and some are brand new, including:Relay WritingFlub FindersSimon Says What?Name That GenreDicey DecimalsBlow, Go, and ShowChart ChallengeMystery Measures RelayCycles CirclesTouch a PlanetCamouflage TagWeather WaryHats Off to HistoryCapital CluesBe a Better BarterA-maze-ing ExpeditionsSkill DrillWhack a SnackColor ChaosInstrumental EarEach game includes one or more learning objectives, a comprehensive materials list, step-by-step information for the teacher on how to prepare for and play the game, any necessary reproducibles (such as game cards, game boards, scorecards), and follow-up activities for extended learning.
