KIM'S GAME

Kim's Game is an exercise designed to slow the student's mind down and pick out details normally missed. This is accomplished in two phases. First, they will observe a number of items for a specified time and then describe them. Second, a number of items will be placed in a tree line and students will find them using optical devices.
