Reward someone with fun facts

Fun information can be more rewarding than stickers. In a study by psychology researchers Aubry Alvarez and Amy Booth, groups of children were asked to perform the mundane task of placing golf tees into a wooden pegboard. Upon task completion, one group were rewarded with stickers. The other group were shown pictures of animals and told exciting facts about them, such as “it has a tail that makes a rattling sound to scare other animals away”. The children who were taught fun facts as a reward were found to work harder than those who received stickers. An interesting finding given stickers are a classic reward used to motivate children!
