LCA prides itself on learning most subjects with a hands-on approach! We pulled this quote from a Scholastic article but it perfectly describes what is happening in our classrooms everyday.
"Projects obviously engage kids who are tactile or kinesthetic learners, who need movement to learn best. They also engage students who are auditory learners, who talk about what they're doing, and visual learners, who have the opportunity to see what everyone else is creating. For social learners, the time spent in small group conversation will strengthen their knowledge. Just as Hicks has found in her classroom, hands-on activities let students become teachers.
