This comes via my master’s graduate program. My professor asked everyone to make a Flibber. Don’t know what that is? Don’t worry. No one did. That was the point. While everyone was making Flibbers, there were observers watching us make the item. The observer’s job was to decide how the students learned. You know. Are you a visual learner? Are you a tactile learner? There are others. Here’s a link to the Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences and you can read up on the kinds of learning styles.
I took a photo of how to make a Flibber. You’ll be very, very surprised by how this turns out… if you can find newspaper! Great “shock and awe” activity for the kiddos.
