District Learning Resource Centre (DLRC) Kits

Picture 262Brain Games [ Primary and Intermediate Kits]
The Intermediate and Primary Brain Games kits include a selection of board games that can be used in the classroom to enhance learning. The games exercise areas such as focus, memory, critical thinking, coordination and work skills, but do so in fun ways that can get students and teachers thinking “outside the box.” The games require different lengths of time to play and can accommodate two or more players; a few can even be played by a single player. Detailed play instructions and two “brain breaks” booklets are available inside the kit.  Press the following link  to access the DLRC: http://library.sd41.bc.ca/cataloging/servlet/handlebasicsearchform.do
