About This Product

SEL Boom Cards! Let's Learn About Our Brain With Audio!

Discover an engaging way for students to learn about their brains with this specialized resource focused on social and emotional learning (SEL). Tailored for students from Grade 2 to Grade 5, this interactive teaching tool introduces various parts of the brain through relatable characters:

  • Prefrontal Cortex (Wise Owl): Teaches about thinking first before making decisions.

  • Hippocampus (Hippo the Librarian): Emphasizes the importance of memories, both the lessons they teach us and the joyous moments they recall.

  • Amygdala (Scared Dog and Excited Dog): Explains emotional reactions like fight, flight, or freeze and offers strategies to handle overwhelming emotions.

The SEL Boom Cards! Let's Learn About Our Brain With Audio! resource contains 24 task cards that present students with real-life situations, prompting them to think about the best possible actions. Additionally, there are 4 informational cards and 3 introduction/closing cards. To ensure all students can participate, each card includes audio support, so reading isn't necessary.

For educators, this SEL Boom Cards! Let's Learn About Our Brain With Audio! tool offers a chance to dive deep into discussions about the brain's anatomy and functions. When students encounter the "Scared Dog," teachers and counselors can introduce coping mechanisms for anxiety or stress. With the "Wise Owl," the emphasis is on pausing and reflecting before acting. "Hippo the Librarian" provides an avenue to discuss the significance of memories, whether they're lessons from past mistakes or reminders of happy times.

This SEL Boom Cards! Let's Learn About Our Brain With Audio! teaching tool isn't just about knowledge; it's about application. By simulating real-life scenarios, students can better understand their feelings, reactions, and decision-making processes. This invaluable resource can be incorporated into a larger lesson, used in smaller group discussions, or even as a unique homework assignment. Dive into the fascinating world of the brain and empower your students with self-awareness and practical strategies for emotional well-being.
