Brain Breaks: No prep, just click play!

It is that time of year! State testing is here!  Don't forget to give your students, along with yourself, a little brain break.  Here are just a few brain break videos that I would actually share with my high school students (although most are appropriate for all ages):

The Best Relaxing Sounds (10 minutes of nature escape)

Lord of the Rings Melody  (Simply beautiful relaxing music)

5 guys & a piano One Direction  (One Direction song played by 5 guys on 1 piano)

The Sid Shuffle – Ice Age (Song, Video & if your kids want, dance to it)

Paint Jam - Dan Dunn (Try to guess what he's painting before he finishes)

Cute Sleepy Animals

Hand Shake (2 Students: Partner A and Partner B handshake)

Toe Tapper Energizing (2 Students: Partner A and Partner B toe tap shake)
