the one with the most correctly linked items, it also requires the players to think and react quickly. Thus, encouraging formal operational thinking by learning how to find the not so obvious links between two objects. This activity promotes Piaget's Transitivity stage of cognitive development theory by teaching the children to infer how two items relate without explicitly comparing them to each other. (Mossler 2014) All of these activities in this room not only promote furthering the children’s educational needs but their social skills as well through team building and cooperation. ROOM #5 – Adolescence Room Who Am I This is a game in which everyone has a piece of paper stuck to their forehead with a persons name on it(typically a famous person, but could also be done with class mates, locations, animals or professions) when it is your turn you are only allowed to ask yes or no questions to try and determine who your paper says you are. This game relates to Piaget’s cognitive development theory as it relates to the stage of learning the children should be in. this game promotes abstract and deductive reasoning and hypothetical thinking to achieve results. (Mossler 2014) This game appeals to the higher thinking capabilities of older children, not only to formulate yes or no question to get the answers they need but also process that information to form a decent guess about what may be written on their paper.

COMMUNITY CENTER 9 Yoga Yoga is just as much about moving your body as it is about learning to just be in one’s body. As this is a very transitional time emotionally and physically for this age group teaching them to be happy in their own skin (or at least nudge them in that direction) is important. A research study done in 2012 showed that student who participated in yoga had positive mood enhancement, lower anxiety and better psychosocial scores than participants who whet on with P.E as usual. (Noggle, Steiner, Minami & Khalsa 2012) Showing that mindful yoga can help relieve some of the stress and tension of being a teen. This will also add some extra physical activity they may not be getting otherwise and add a layer of emotional control through the breathing exercises. Monopoly Monopoly is a board game that can encourage smart money management skills, math skills and strategic thinking skills. Learning how to spend money wisely is an important part of growing up, it is important that these skills be developed early, while the game of monopoly may not help these children apply for school loans. It will help them make smart choices about when, where and how they spend money. While the boys in this group may not want to participate in the yoga activity it is important that we continue to strive for their participation. The emotional upheaval going on in this age group can be a lot to handle but we can give them the tools to succeed in managing some of that through yoga.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
