Do you want to engage kids in your lessons? Here are seven proven ways.

Interactive Discussion
Encourage kids to discuss what you’re teaching. Ask open-ended questions. Stop lecturing and start facilitating discussion.

Hands-on Activities
Kids engage when you provide them with activities, crafts, experiments, etc.

Push Play
When you push play, kids engage. Use video clips to illustrate truth.

Honor Their Attention Span
Keep segments in their attention span range. One minute for every year. Exmaple: Five minutes for a 5-year-old.

Kids love to play. Games that teach will engage kids in your lesson.

Tell Stories
Everyone loves stories. It’s wired in our DNA.

Use Visual Communication.
Today’s kids hear with their eyes. Use lots of pictures.
