Ide Brain Break: Back to Back Challenge

 

I love brain breaks that can be adapted and ramped up. This both adds layers of challenge in ways that maintain students interest.

This video of a back to back challenge was not what I was expecting and that in itself led me to realise the potential of it.

I imagined it would be pairs yet instead it is the entire group linked together by their arms and working together to stand. This then would work if students firstly started in pairs to do the back to back challenge, screen-shot-2019-09-17-at-8.06.18-am-e1568673572806.png

then found another pair to combine with to again do the back to back challenge and so on until the group size limit has been achieved for the student cohort.

This video also demonstrates how the group work together to achieve the challenge. I think though another layer of challenge could be inviting the cohort to manage the entire process themselves!!
