Learn what to do when your students’ feet just can’t keep still.

The authors of Active Lessons for Active Brains have assembled an indispensable, ready-to-use collection of mathematics, language arts, science, and classroom management strategies to focus a classroom full of energetic minds. Designed for active, hands-on learners—whether male or female—the text provides more than 70 specific lesson plans for addressing students’ common challenges, already differentiated to match their experiential learning style.

The many benefits of using this book include:

• A more orderly classroom
• Enhanced capacity to focus on tasks
• Improved retention of subject matter
• Increased student engagement

This book contains a wealth of examples, visuals, and material that can be easily reproduced in the classroom. Suitable for upper elementary to high school students, lesson plans can be readily adapted to suit any curriculum.
