Earth Day Word Search Puzzles – Why word puzzles? Studies have shown that word search and other word puzzles can help improve memory, focus, vocabulary, word recognition, pattern recognition, and overall mental acuity!
Earth Day Mazes | Puzzles for the Mind – Why mazes? A maze might just look like a fun way to pass time, but they’re actually a valuable learning tool for children. Here’s why:
-For children, completing mazes is a great way to boost their problem solving skills.
-Solving mazes also boosts their patience and persistence and teaches them about the rewards of work.
-Mazes can also help improve a child’s cognitive thought processes.
-Solving mazes are wonderful for improving hand-eye coordination.
-Concentrating on a maze also helps with memory too
Recycling Survey | Math Activity – A fun Math graphing activity that encompasses recycling! Use it as an activity when you want students to practice using tally marks and graphing or use it as an Earth Day activity.
