Option 2: Explaining Vision or Hearing to Kids
- For this option, pretend that a 6-year-old asks you “How do we see? ” or “How do we hear?”
- Find a way a creative way to answer one of these questions. You can design a handout, children’s book, a coloring book, a brochure, a video, or power point presentation- anything that can explain to a 6-year old how that sense works. If you have another idea, check with your instructor. Your target audience is children so make sure your explanations are simple but you still use the scientific terminology. BE CREATIVE!
