Get your students up and moving with a set of fun Basketball Brain Break Activity Cards.

There Goes the Buzzer! It’s Time for a Brain Break!

We’re sure we all remember those days in college, you know…the one where you’re sitting in statistics class, nothing makes sense, and you’re brain is complete toast from trying to work out a process. As adults, we clearly remember those moments and how we felt the need for just five minutes…five minutes to take a breather, five minutes to grab a drink, five minutes to stretch, just something to break the tension and give us a restart. 

Adults aren’t the only ones who have those moments. Kids need them even more than we do. That’s why we’ve put together this fun set of Basketball-themed Brain Break activity cards! You’re students will love getting the chance to take a quick break, get moving, and reset their emotional state with something fun and different.

Print 16 Brain Breaks for Kids!

This basketball themed deck of brain break ideas includes sixteen different activities, grouped into categories: Conditioning Skills, Ball Handling Skills, Victory Dances, and more. They’re the perfect way to give them that little boost they need to keep powering through the curriculum.
