Brain Based Juggling: Learn how to Juggle Activity & Directions

Do you want your students to have higher test scores and be less stressed out? Here is a secret from Brain Research:

Many neuroscientists are now teaching themselves how to juggle to improve their own memory, concentration, creativity, and focusing. And you can bet that they are teaching their own children and patients to do the same!

People of all ages (starting with kindergarteners and ending with the elderly population) can learn to juggle to improve problem solving, increase self-esteem, improve hand eye coordination and gross motor skills.

Juggling incorporates the three educational domains of psychomotor, cognitive, and affect. It can teach the young and old alike skills such as goal setting, delay of gratification, and balance.

But the best news of all is that juggling grows dendrites in the brain! It also is a stress reducer. Try to teach juggling to your students and see if you can grow dendrites and get higher test scores!
