Do The Stroop

Students read two lists of color words - the second of which shows the word printed in a color different from the one the word represents - and ask their peers to identify which of the lists was more challenging and why.

Cool Tool

Using pencils, students explore touch and temperature sensitivity by finding cool receptors on their skin. Optional: Display Frames may be purchased at www.displays2go.com/product.asp?ID=520 or you may call to order them at 1-800-572-2194

Blind Spot

Students move a test strip through their field of vision and determine at which position one of the symbols disappears, thus identifying their blind spot.
