Good detectives notice and remember details. You need to be able to concentrate on details with your eyes and store what you see in your memory. Practice can help you get better at this. First, see if you can use your eyes to find hidden pictures in the I Spy Game. Then, take it a notch tougher. Take the Harriet the Spy Spy test. Watch this carefully and then answer the questions that follow. I tried it – it’s tricky!
Next, try these exercises in observation. Spot the differences between two photos and watch a video to see what kind of witness you would make: how many differences you can spot.
