Science Buddies: Memory Mnemonics

Here’s a science project you won’t forget! Gather six students and divide them into a control group and experimental group. The control group will try to memorize a list of words, but the experimental group will memorize the list with the help of a mnemonic, from the Greek word for memory. All the instructions and procedures are outlined on this site as well as associated vocabulary words and important questions to consider. Remember--HOMES is the mnemonic for Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior, the Great Lakes.
