Children learn —
10% of what they read
20% of what they hear
30% of what they see
50% of what they see and hear
70% of what they say in their own words
90% of what they say while they do something
With this in mind, we should provide learning opportunities which incorporate seeing, hearing, saying, and doing. The Here A Little, There A Little lessons on this blog are designed to teach a Bible verse using as many senses as possible.
