Abstract

The paper explains what Intelligence and Memory Activating Box is (IMAB) and opines that several of such boxes can be employed as Academic Learning Materials (ALMs) buy teachers during their teaching to deliver effective lessons to learners at the primary and secondary levels (Grades 1- 12 levels) who should in turn utilize them to study/learn. These boxes can be designed and utilized by teachers and learners alike to provoke interests and motivated to perform well and achieve better in their academic endeavors. The paper also outlined steps for the preparation of lessons that can be used to feed concept envelops and cards into several of such boxes and went on to outlined steps on how the different IMABs can be designed. It also pointed out how such ALMs should be used by teachers and learners alike.
