Image Imitation (VIDEO) – Brain Break, Buildup, or Freestanding Activity

Yes, this blog is still rolling! I’ve simply just returned from trip number seventeen this calendar year, covering fifteen states and three countries, so my blogging has been more like blah-ging.

During those trips I got to learn and try lots of fun and useful things, one of which is the subject of this post, a follow-up on a session from Mitten CI in April, which included a brain break in which participants had to mimic some quirky pictures I projected. I thought about writing up a more detailed description with variants, but Sarah Breckley (Wisconsin 2017 Teacher of the Year!), who was in attendance, beat me to it and did a better job than I would have. So, I’ll just link her handy post and embed the accompanying video, which has already caught on and generated the name Fotos en Vivo, which is cooler than Image Imitation. (For those of you into nomenclature lore, I also considered Imagitation.)

The only other thing you need to know is that Sarah says this may be her “new favorite Get Your Butts Moving Activity.”

Oh, don’t forget that this is a great brain break to Unbreak!
