Right Ear/Left Ear

In this activity (4th on the page), learners conduct a series of tests to find out which of their ears is more dominant. In other words, do they prefer to use their right or left ear to complete tasks? Learners work in pairs and observe each other doing simple tasks like listening to a whisper, listening to a mystery object in a box, and listening through a wall. Learners collect data to draw conclusions about their partner's "earedness."
