Brain Training Games from Mind 360

Mind 360 is a fun website that I learned about over the weekend on the Recess Duty blog. Mind 360 features at least eighteen free brain training games. The games range in difficulty and in task from simple matching games to more difficult logic and reasoning games. Mind 360 allows you to play the games individually or challenge another Mind 360 user to a game. If you play often, you can track your game scores and progress in your Mind 360 profile.

Applications for Education
Mind 360 could be a good website for students to use during a downtime in your class or during a study hall period. The games themselves might be difficult to build a lesson plan around, but the skills that students could develop while playing the games do have value.
