Our Brain is Processing

RecycleJack Marine's picture

Our brain processes information and makes sense of it. We make more connections as we take in more information.

We need to teach children subjects that they can connect to after the lessons. So can children connect to how candy tastes? If they hold their nose, can they "feel" that there are sugars dissolving in the jelly beans as they are chewed- like I can? Can they realistically tell you when they no longer smell scents while holding the right or left side of their nostrils? These are two experiments we tried today.
