Interactive Visits to TJR
Sharing what we've learnedabout Perception.
We started each day with a generalintroduction of our class, and then pairs of students gave briefpresentations about various aspects of perception. Each pair made aposter which was left behind so that the seventh graders could referto the information later. After these presentations, the collegestudents worked one-on-one with seventh graders and explained and ledthem through the demonstrations. Picturesfrom the visit can also be viewed.
