This valuable guide gives teachers the tools they need to plan lessons correlated to the way the brain learns best—and to ensure success for all students regardless of their learning style or special challenges! Drawing on classroom-tested, research-based strategies from Worksheets Don't Grow Dendrites, this practical resource offers a variety of content-specific activities that incorporate graphic organizers and other visuals that reinforce student learning.

Based on national academic standards, these activities feature graphic organizers and visuals such as bar graphs, timelines, concept maps, sequence charts, cause-and-effect charts, Venn diagrams, labeled diagrams, and more. Each activity includes step-by-step directions, skills objectives, materials lists, and a myriad of creative reproducibles that help students organize and record their learning.

These brain-compatible activities cover topics such as

  • Statistics, graphs, probability
  • Atoms, scientific discoveries, body systems
  • American Revolution, government, citizenship
  • Poetry, character development, story building
  • Health, art, music, and much more
