In today's show, we'll discuss:

  • Backwards classroom race
  • 60-second pitches
  • Face off
  • Smartphone ping pong
  • Penny catch

Plus, Rob gives a 40-second pitch to teachers about the reasons they need brain breaks in their classroom.

Have some fun! Take a break! You might need these especially as kids are taking high-intensity tests to help kids refresh and gear back up.

(I am not crazy about the tests but I am crazy about kids. When I feel things getting too intense, I take brain breaks with my students.) 

I hope you enjoy this episode with Rob!
