Back-To-School Games & Activities: Lesson #3

Simply introducing a small number of interactive games on the first day of school is not nearly enough to help students settle into their new school year.

Here is a fun 30-minute program you can present at any time your students need a break from their lessons to ease them back into the school routine.
