Hands On Learning
Mrs. Spicher's 1st & 2nd graders are busy learning...hands on! These students are literally creating land and water forms.
Hands-on learning is a form of education in which children learn by doing. Instead of simply listening to a teacher or instructor lecture about a given subject, the student engages with the subject matter to solve a problem or create something. Hands-on learning brings so many benefits to students, including: (1) It is a more engaging way to learn. (2) It can lead to increased retention. (3) It can offer practice in problem solving and critical thinking. (4) It often results in a physical creation. **From the Friends' Central School Blog
