ELE Experience: Looking for Whole Brain Learning? Corpus Callosum gives you left brain and right brain in one experience, allowing students to be creative and to think logically!! This experience will take a content area (teacher’s choice) and wrap hands on activities around it. Some recent examples include: using measurement skills to create unpoppable bubble solutions, creating fun toys using electricity and magnetism, and using force and motion knowledge to create rockets out of household materials. They infuse various arts into the process of building their business from using visual arts to design the company logo to using dance, drama, and music to create marketing materials. ELA standards are incorporated throughout the ELE experience from communicating ideas to creating marketing materials. (Visit link for additional information)
