Sally DeCost from Elementary Matters did, where she connected America's favorite summer sport, geography (my favorite), and the brain. I love the geography connection because it encourages students to not just memorize states and capitals, but to actually know them and gives them a reason to want to know them.
Try your skills at creating a lesson, morning message, or seatwork that incorporates geography and other curricular subjects. Have you checked out Dr. Alice Christie's Google Treks?
There are many ways to meet the needs of learners in your classroom. Using any of these sites is an excellent way to differentiate for all of them and to engage them at the same time. Give brain-based learning a chance, you might just be surprised how curious your students will become about the world and the places they are learning about.
