4. Pick a student. Show the class how you will tape his/her thumbs to the inside of his/her palm so that they can do this to each other. Then tell students that they will time each other to see how long it takes to put on the clothes (over their clothes) with their thumbs taped. The times should be recorded.
5. After the groups are finished, they should report to the class how long it took them to put the clothes on and how they felt during the activity.
6. Discuss with students how people's lives are different due to abilities or inabilities. How would their families be affected? Social lives? Education?
