Lets take the child who enjoys sports but doesn't like math as an example. If he is given the math problem " If I have ten apples and I give three of them to someone, how many apples do I have left?" they may not be able to visualize the problem because it is boring to them. Now if the problem said, " The pitcher threw ten balls and the batter hit tree of them, How many balls did the batter miss?" the child can visualize the question easier because it relates to something they enjoy.
With this type of learning technique, we can show children their creative side and can apply it to other gaps in their life.
