Lesson Plan 23: Acting out disabilities
Objective:  Students will feel what it is like to have a physical disability.
               Students will evaluate how their lives would be different.

Materials:  Tape, oversized clothes (clothes with buttons), stopwatch (es) or clock with second hand

Method of Lesson Presentation:

1.  Review with students their morning routines and how long it takes everybody to get ready for school.

2.  Tell students that their morning routines will change today.  Have them break into groups of three.

3.  Each group will have an oversized shirt, pants, stopwatch (if available), and tape.

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?

7.  Students can reflect on the activity in a journal.

Assessment: Observation sheet based on level of participation on a 0-2 scale: 0-non-particpation 1-some participation 2- full participation in activity, and an anecdotal record based on behavior during activity.
