Exercise for both lobes of the brain

While giving children tasks for everyday activities and brain exercise, it is important to give tasks, that stimulate both lobes of the brain simultaneously.

 

Here is an exercise, that is offered by teachers from the Norwegian kindergarten “L√¶ringsverkstedet”!

 

Divide the children in pairs and ask them to stand face to face. Then for them to repeatedly count to three.

  • One
  • Two
  • Three

 

When that has been repeated for a little while, tell them to replace the number “one” with a clap.

  • Clap
  • Two
  • Three

 

Then replace the number “two” with a clap on the hip.

  • Clap
  • Clap on the hip
  • Three

 

Lastly, replace the number “three” with a squat.

  • Clap
  • Clap on the hip
  • Squat

 

Laughter guaranteed!
