**  Statistics have shown that the use of a live object, adjacent to quality instruction increases memory retention.  Team members retain and recall appropriate application longer when stimulated by visual and emotional mediums (Kobayashi, 1985; Hart & O'Shanick, 1993; Olson, Logan and Lindsey, 1988; and Mayer and Anderson, 1992).
