Active Bodies, Active Brains offers a wealth of physical activities to help kids develop physical, social, and cognitive skills. Based on cutting-edge research in brain compatibility, these games and activities help children - increase their ability to focus; integrate their movement with thinking, thus enhancing development of neural pathways; improve memory; open up more areas of the brain to participate in learning; reduce stress and enhance positive feelings to increase their learning; and include physical activity in their daily lives. Active Bodies, Active Brains provides you with 66 activities and games—and it shows you how to easily modify and extend those to create numerous additional games. Indeed, by applying the techniques in this book, you can create an endless supply of brain-compatible physical activities while helping your participants build cognition, health-related fitness, and physical skills.

In each activity, kids are put in situations where they have to think critically—they learn how to think while they have fun moving. This movement–learning relationship is bolstered by research showing that movement enhances comprehension.
