KNOW THE THEORY OF LEARNING BY DOING.

Arts and crafts offer children endless opportunities to learn by doing.  And they are likely to remember what they learn!  Brain researchers tell us that children retain much better when hands-on activities go along with their learning.

Children learn:

10% of what they READ

20% of what they HEAR

30% of what they SEE

50% of what they HEAR & READ

70% of what they SAY

90% of what they DO!                 (Taken from School-Age Notes, May 2001)
