3. Let Students See and Then Do
Students learn best when they can take part and find out for themselves
about something new.
A lecture about brushing teeth is usually not interesting at all.
Learning is more interesting when students can see how to make a
brush and how to clean teeth properly.
If students can actually make their own brushes and clean their own
teeth, it is not only interesting but fun.
A student who takes part will not forget. What he learns by doing
becomes part of himself.
