Cognitive Health: Lots of Ways to Learn

2nd Grade (Ages 7-8)


About the Story

This story describes how the way that we learn changes as the world changes. Our ability to keep learning throughout our lifetime is what helps to keep our brain healthy.  

  • Back in the caveman days and early in our lives, we learn about things that help us to survive. All animals learn these survival skills from other animals that take care of them. 
  • Usually, what animals learn is passed down from one generation to the next. Humans have the ability to pass along knowledge from generations due to our ability to read and write. 
  • Reading and writing make learning easier and it gives humans more time to develop things like technology, which further helps our ability to learn.
