Interesting indeed. What does it mean for kids in the classroom? Hate to be the teacher right before lunch.
I teach college age students and we let them eat in the classroom, so it's not the same as with kids in grammar or middle school, but good point that keeping kids in a learning mode or even just "entertained" right before lunch is challenging. A fun game that reinforces the learning is always good!
