We also did a KIM exercise (Keep in Memory) where the students viewed 8 objects for 60 seconds and then had to recall the number of objects, the name of the objects and any details they remembered. They accomplished the recall part of the exercise four hours later. This exercise was devised by no other than Rudyard Kipling! We used Ms. Clark's class as our control group. They viewed the objects before they exercised and our class viewed the objects after exercise. My hypothesis was that the CotiSweets would have greater recall after exercise due to the oxygenation of our brains. Well, this did prove to be true since we had a much greater recall than the other class. I am not going to claim victory, though, since this was a one-time experiment with only two classes. Still! I do believe that exercise is a dominant factor in how well our brains perform.
Enjoy the photos and please keep Niall in your thoughts and prayers as he deploys to Afghanistan for his first tour of duty in a couple of weeks. THANK YOU!!!
