Learn how everyday objects can be used to promote critical thinking and engagement in all subject areas. Adolescent learners need the opportunity to move, share, create and connect in order to learn. Using everyday objects as manipulatives helps students connect abstract concepts with something tangible. These learning activities promote rich discussions, broader perspectives, and a deeper understanding of concepts. In addition to creating a physical symbol that represents an abstract concept in their curriculum, participants will be able to sift through a myriad of objects, cards, toys, and photos of actual activities for inspiration. All ideas will be connected to adolescent brain research and the Common Core verbs.
