Blood Sugar Levels
Use this video to explain how Diabetes affects insulin production. Processing glucose is the main concept explained in this resource. It gives valuable details about the regular, pre, and post-meal normal levels of blood sugar concentration, and how they are affected over time by the different levels of insulin generated in diabetics.

Building an Organic Molecule
Glucose is a simple sugar and a molecule that can be illustrated through modeling. Scientific investigators with visual impairments use hands-on models to reconstruct the process of bonding molecules. The tools used in this activity are ones that are commonly used with general ed classes, but work very well for unsighted learners as well.
