KidProv
Unchained Brains
Tchrs K-12
It is a proven fact that humor, laughter, and novelty unchain the brain's ability to learn and to retain information, not to mention their power to motivate. Kidprof utilizes the art of improvisational comedy to establish a learning environment where participants are alert, engaged and creative. Educationally entertaining, teachers return to the classroom renewed and refreshed, armed with a myriad of activities that are easily adaptable/applied to all ages and curriculum.
