Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Maintaining a Fit Brain: Exploring Neuro-plasticity! - Section 2: Engage


I found that students were extremely intrigued with this section of the lesson and wanted to try it out themselves to assess the validity of the claim. I say, let them try it. Students had a great time with and felt challenged in do so. An easy way to incorporate this and keep it inquiry oriented is to pause the video just prior to him disclosing the nature of the trick and provide students with fake bills to figure it out first. Disclose this information by continuing the video and again allow students to try it as instructed in the video. We tried it out at the end of the lesson, but enjoyed in this position as well.
