Our brains are wired to perceive patterns and structure in the world around us. Discover how to give young children the structure that they need to set up a strong foundation for learning, and how to add new activities and ideas in ways that nurture their hunger for learning.
Three educational DVDs from Learning ZoneXpress, intended for viewers from grade 7 to adult, are brimming with invaluable information about brain development in young people.
"The Brain: Activity, Sleep & Boredom" (20 min.) explores how all three of its titular aspects are crucial for developing brains. Physical activity is vital to keep the brain healthy as well as the body; sleep is indispensable to the brain's daily recuperation; and even simple boredom, or "doing nothing", plays a critical role to helping the brain process the world around it, and even the cornerstone to stimulating creativity.
"The Brain: Pattern, Structure & Novelty" (21 min.) explores the importance of both structure and innovation in aiding young children with developing brains. Stability is necessary to help children feel secure and learn, but their brains are always in search of new interests to avoid boredom! Striking the proper balance between familiarity and exciting new surprises is essential to encourage learning and development.
"The Brain: Developing Memory in Developing Brains" rounds out this exceptional series, highly recommended especially for public or grade school/high school DVD libraries and homeroom viewing.
