Just a thought

Now we all remember the game telephone from our childhoods.  Kids whisper a phrase around a room and marvel as it’s distorted through mishearing.  Somehow we don’t take this game and use it to teach a valuable lesson about the nature of information transmission.

This game shows kids how they can’t trust their own ears, which should naturally lead to a questioning of everything they think they know.   It’s a good rational thought game.  Teach your children well.
