6 Ways to Spice Up Your Teen's Studies

Mike Calhoun at just posted some clever games to promote academic learning.

Here is one of my favorites from his post:

"Tell all the players to study some science related material. Next, have everyone stand up and form a circle, facing in, looking at each other. Toss a ball or some other round object to one player and have him or her tell what they thought was the most important concept they just learned. That person then tosses the ball to someone and that person explains what they though was the most important concept. Continue the exercise until everyone has caught the ball at least once and explained an important concept."

Check all six ideas out at 6 Ways to Spice Up Your Teen's Studies!
