INTRODUCING DR. LAMOURELLE’S. . .
THE BRAINDOUGH™ CURRICULUM:
Thinkeriffic Doughs for Preschool
Science Activities . . .
The easiest way to get early learning professionals to incorporate science into their curriculum is to use activities and media they are already comfortable with and linking their use with scientific principles and processes. If learning is best through play, then consider learning the brain-based way by using and making braindough. It is fun to make creative braindough concoctions that teach science, math, reading, social skills, and brain function. Easy recipes will enable learners and educators to predict the outcome of their dough combinations.
The brain constructs learning by work and experience. During the process of creating the braindoughs, children will have the opportunity to use many science and math concepts such as:
- Making predictions
- Looking for patterns
- Learning new words
- Sorting and analyzing data
- Testing theories
These 25 plus recipes for Thinkeriffic braindoughs are just a start. Through experimentation and trial and error, learners can create many other braindoughs that are as individual as they are. No two brains are ever alike and no two braindough recipes will ever be exactly alike, even with a recipe. Go ahead, relax, experiment, and learn.
