ACTIVE BRAIN BREAKS
Active Brain Breaks provide students with a chance to have a physically active break from learning so that they can come back to learning re-focussed and ready to concentrate. The active brain break allows for students’ neurotransmitters (brain’s messenger chemicals between neurons) to replenish after being depleted due to concentrating for long periods of time (as little as 10 minutes!).
Active Brain Breaks also help oxygen-rich blood reach the brain and body, get muscles moving, build rapport between students and teachers, and create a fun, positive and stress-free learning environment - all important ingredients for learning.
Take a look at some of the fun active brain breaks taken by students using our Aussie Active Desks at home or at school!
