Session 114: Active Memorization

Write or print out a poem, story or list you’d like to memorize today. Then think of an exercise to do while you recite your piece. You’re going to use this when you need a quick mind re-set.

Some suggestions for you:
1. Punch out Morse code on a punching bag. A=punch kick, B=kick punch punch punch, etc.
2. Recite the periodic table of elements while walking around the end of a baseball bat. (points if you can walk in a straight line afterward!)

3. Name the 50 states while doing jumping jacks or running in place.

4. List the numbers of pi while bouncing a ball.

5. Recite Shakespeare, poetry, a story, or the Gettysburg address while walking or running around the block.

What else would you add to the list?
