A behavioral specialist at Idaho Falls Elementary School ran this simple but brilliant experiment for her kids. One of those impactful images one can’t unsee.
I love teaching, and am inspired by this great example because:
- Context. She uses the kids’ everyday environment – relevant and relatable
- Time frame. Conducted within a reasonable window, they remain engaged
- Visualization. The results speak for themselves – no words needed
As we’re all helping our kids get the most out of this time, in addition to the fun experiments I recently shared, this would be a great one to help explain why we’re all at home. Make the experiment a game– whoever finds the most bacteria in the house wins and gets to watch while the others clean it! #elearning #LifeLessons
