The brain builders I have are wooden planks that are perfect for students to construct various objects and pictures. I introduced the planks as a Fun Friday afternoon activity, and my students loved working together to build anything they could come up with!
Brain Builders Junior puzzle cards. On the cards, students saw a diagram of something to try to build... They were a HIT! The kids LOVED the challenges! There were amazing discussions going on with my students about different ways to try to build these pictures.
Because I was using these with my whole class on a Fun Friday, I used the Brain Builders Junior cards and the Color Pops Planks. The planks that come in the Brain Builders bag are perfect for 1-3 students to use together, so I keep them in an early finisher tub. Students grab them when they have extra time or finish work early. When we are all exploring with the brain builders, I pull out my big boxes of purple and turquoise Color Pops so there are plenty to go around for the whole class.
These kiddos worked hard to build a pallet. Here's the during and after... They were SO proud of themselves!
MindWare STEM materials to your classroom, or even getting enough to share with your grade level. They are SO worth it, and they're a HIT with your students!
