A Walk In The Rain With A Brain – Activity #1: "Words & Actions To Strengthen The Brain"

  • Grade 3
  • A Walk In The Rain With A Brain – Activity #1: "Words & Actions To Strengthen The Brain"

Activity #1: “Words & Actions To Strengthen The Brain”

This activity reinforces positive actions that students can do to independently strengthen their own brains and the brains of others. Alternatively, it also works to display examples of actions or words to avoid that might weaken our own brains and the brains of others.


  • T-Charts
  • Thick felt pen

Teacher Preparation:

  • N/A


Step by Step:

Step One: Displaying a T-Chart, on one side, write the words “Strengthens the Brain.” On the other side of the TChart, write the words “Weakens the Brain”

Step Two: Provide examples of sentences that may either strengthen our brains or weaken our brains. Have students decide which side of the T-Chart the examples would be placed.


Someone made fun of you because of the clothes you were wearing.

Someone said you weren’t a very good hockey player.

Someone said they were proud of you for completing your homework.

You were told you were good at playing a musical instrument.

One of your best friends called you a ‘geek’.

Someone helped you solve a problem.

Someone asked your opinion about something important.

You heard that there was a negative rumor about you going around the classroom.

Someone forgave you when you made a mistake.

Going swimming.

Playing out on the playground.

Watching television for hours.

Playing on the computer for hours.

Playing on the computer for a little bit of time.

Reading a book.

Writing a story.

Helping mom in the kitchen.

Step Three: Have students come up with 2 – 3 ideas to strengthen the brain both verbally and physically and 2 – 3 ideas that would weaken the brain.

Step Four: Emphasize that there are many things that occur during the day that have the ability to strengthen or weaken our brains. We all interact with one another in the classroom so it is important that we work together every day.


End Product:

A helpful T-Chart that lists both verbal and physical ideas that both strengthen and weaken the brain.
