1. Matt ________
I think kids learn better by studying for tests. If you sit and study what you should learn, you’ll remember it. Hands-on projects might end up making kids feel stressed if they are trying to finish on time, and if you are stressed, you might not learn as much.
2. Katie ________
When people study, they remember what is in the book. If they know they are going to have a test, they will be more likely to take notes of all the important information to help them with the test. They will learn better in this way.
3. Alyssa ________
With a hands-on project, you can be creative when you learn. It’s also a lot more fun than sitting at a desk with flashcards. Plus, with a hands-on project, you can learn more than you expected. It’s more satisfying to learn on your own without someone explaining it to you.
4. Wendy ________
Hands-on projects are better. When you are studying for a test, it can get boring and then you can get distracted (注意力分散的). You learn better by doing projects because it is not boring and you can experience new things.
5. Haley ________
I think kids should learn hands-on projects because they have to consider the topic, instead of just memorizing information that they’ll forget about after the test. Also, completing a project is good for spending time with your friends or family.
