Learning by doing means learning from experiences resulting directly from one’s own actions, as contrasted with learning from watching others perform, reading others instructions or descriptions, or listening to others instructions or lectures. Of course, watching, reading, and listening are actions, but they are not the kinds of doing referred to as learning by doing because they yield direct experience with demonstrations or descriptions of actions rather than with actions the learner actually performs.
What is great about perpetual calendar is that they can be changed to show any combination of day, month, and year, which means that the same calendar can be used year after year. Sure, everyone can purchase a perpetual calendar at a store or online, but these people would spend way too much money and they wouldn’t be as awesome as the perpetual calendars maked by own hands.
I choose this idea, because it will be interesting for kids and also for adults. Make it once, and you can use it forever – just move the numbers to their correct location each month, and change the nameplate.
