Children Retain Information Better When They’re Engaged in It
You’ve probably observed that your children retain information better and longer when they’re actively engaged in the learning process. Even children who struggle with traditional academics feel accomplished after participation in a hands-on activity. The more of the five senses they can use when learning, the better the chance of them retaining the information.
Some Things Can Only Be Learned by Doing Them
Both in school and in life, some lessons just have to be learned through experience! Reading about something in a textbook just doesn't do it, but they “click” instantly when the child performs the experiment for themselves.
Hands-On Learning Provides an “Anchor” in the Memory
When kids look back on an activity they did, whether it was drawing or cooking or gardening, this memory provides an “anchor” in their mind. They’re more likely to attach feelings to the learning process. And this means they’re more likely to remember the lesson attached to the activity!
That’s why JHA includes hands-on science activities in our homeschool science curriculum: They believe children learn best when they enjoy the process!
- Experience Biology Elementary
- Experience Astronomy Elementary
- NEW! Earth Science Explored Elementary
JHA courses consist of a unique blend of reading, videos, activity sheets, and hands-on activities and science experiments.
What parents are saying
I was concerned about the cost, but knew I was going to struggle with getting the fun, but important subjects done…We had a new baby arriving this year and a herd of goats to manage daily. Experience Astronomy was perfect for this time of our life because it was so easy to use. I liked that the lessons were brief, but deep. And five of our seven kids were able to enjoy them, which was such a gift to me because with such a span of ages, it’s hard to find something we can all enjoy. Experience Astronomy provides a great and easy to assimilate science into even the busiest of weeks.– Karissa (mom to Elementary Astronomy students)
