Take a "Science Second"

I have been learning more about how the brain works by using the book "Brain Rules" by John Medina, and wanted to incorporate some of that information into our science class.  I wanted a way to accomplish three goals- remembering science vocabulary in a fun way, spiraling vocabulary throughout the year, and being able to take spontaneous brain breaks throughout our class but not lose our focus on what we are working on.  So I made up the name "SCIENCE SECOND" and we started them today by putting hand motions with our science vocabulary words that would be associated with the meaning.  Here are three of the words we did today focusing on the types of rocks and the rock cycle- Metamorphic, Igneous, and Sedimentary.  It was led by our Paparazzi team in this class (Team Atlantis).
