Be the one to make a difference in your students’ thinking! With more than 100 games to choose from, Brain Food is your one-stop source for exploring the fun in learning. This compilation is filled with new as well as traditional brain games, and most need little more than paper and a pencil to get you started. Each game is classroom tested and tailored to encourage cooperation and teamwork as well as deductive logic. The book includes:
  • word games,
  • math games,
  • logic games,
  • memory games, and
  • much more!

One exciting aspect of this book is that it has a bit of an international flavor. It is filled with fun games from around the world that challenge and stimulate young minds. From the Japanese strategy game Hasami Shogi, to the traditional African game Wari, to the deductive game Witch Hunt, to the word challenge Wordbuilder, these mind-stretching tools encourage complex thinking skills.

Games by their very nature require thinking. With Brain Food you’ll get teaching tools such as Alphamazement—a game of strategy that challenges both visual and verbal skills by having players connect letters of the alphabet in a zigzagging maze. Or, try the traditional Maori game Mu-Torere to enhance visual and mathematical skills.

Brain Food
This book contains strategy, alignment, blocking, chase, capture, checkers, chess, maze, math, logic, language arts, memory, and visual arts games. There are 118 total games from all over the world, including Korea, England, Japan, West Africa and plenty more.  All of the games need at least 2 players and some need 4 or more to play. A few of the games need to be photocopied because writing on the game board is necessary, but most of the games can be played regardless of whether or not you leave the paper in the book or tear it out. 

We found it very interesting that many of the games were very similar to each other, but had slight variants pertaining to the country of origin.
