Foundation/Grade 1 Starter

Activity Time!

Pick something that you really want to put effort into. It could be something to do with your school work, it could be sport, it could be music, it could be a friendship, it could be something to do with your family. Spend at least 15 minutes each day working on it. It can be longer. Work on it for at least 5 days per week. 

Come back in a few weeks and see how good you might be getting at it. Getting better at the task means your brain cells are connecting.

We have 100 billion brain cells (we call these neurons) and trillions of synapses between them (that is a lot!).
