Students learn better by doing. Kinesthetic (or Hands-On) Learning has students engaging in physical activities to learn a subject instead of reading or a simple lecture. Teachers give your students a hands on experience into history with a field trip they won't soon forget!
Students Retain More
Hands-on learning better engages both the left and right sides of the brain.
During a long lecture, there's nothing a student is paying attention to more than the clock. Hands-on activities get students up and moving.
Encourages Teamwork and Critical Thinking
Many real-world jobs involve working in groups on projects and finding innovative solutions to problems with critical thinking. During hands-on activities, students work together and foster teamwork skills.
