I bought the book Brain Rules today. The Amazon reviews are extremely positive and I'm looking forward to reading it.
The thing that caught my eye was the rule about exercise boosting brain power (a drum that I am often beating). This You Tube clip is a link to the book, and briefly explains the connection between exercise and increased brain power. It's a little cheesy, but still worth a look.
Click this link to visit the Brain Rules website for an overview on the exercise chapter. The points in the overview clearly highlight that we can't afford not to have our students exercising regularly as part of the classroom programme.
