Get those young adolescent minds and bodies in motion with energizing activities you can do with 15 to 20 minutes in advisory, academic, homeroom, or elective classes.

Tested and proven by real middle school students, these activities can serve as:

  • attention-getters,
  • teambuilding strategies,
  • getting-to-know-you games, and
  • collaborative learning endeavors.

While you and your students are having fun and learning, you gain insight about their social skills, learning styles, and personal interests to use as a base for future planning.

Flexible enough to span recall to higher-order thinking, the activities minimize risk and liability and are presented in a clear, easy-to-follow format with modifications and variations to suit different classroom situations.
