Reflection: Journaling Build a Paper Tower Challenge (Part 1) Defining, Researching and Getting the Specs - Section 4: Explanation


Using music to learn and review concepts can be very powerful.  The use of music and rhythm creates organization of the information, making it easier for your brain to remember details and procedures. Since most children are magnetically drawn to cartoons, attaching a song and a cartoon together makes it doubly powerful! In addition, using cartoons together with songs can also aide the memory of all children including those with language issues or disabilities.   Plus it keeps things fun and interesting.
