Action Based Learning Body Brain Adventure Lab for Elementary School Students
Action Based Learning Labs are designed to prepare the brain for learning. Each active learning station in the lab, applies what we know about the brain body connection by focusing on the 12 foundations of Learning Readiness. For example, the body’s vestibular system controls balance and spatial awareness. Strengthening these foundations facilitates the students ability to place words and letters on a page. When a student walks or crawls in specific patterns, the brain’s ability to encode symbols is increased. Proper development and remediation of these systems are critical to a childs’ ability to learn.
Students engaged in Action Based Learning improve memory retention, reinforce academic concepts, balance brain chemicals while experiencing whole-brain, whole body learning.
Day to Day
Typically students will spend 2-5 minutes at each station in the lab, rotating at the sound of a buzzer. Some of the stations include flip-chart holders, the content of the flip chart can be customized based on the curriculum for that day. This is great for students reviewing facts before tests! Students can also pair up and work with partners - one student will be moving while the other student is quizzing them.
ABL equipment comes with formal training and classroom certifications for schools and after school learning centers. ABL lab packages are customized to fit individual needs, budget, and space. All ABL labs include stations to target all 12 foundations of learning readiness.
