Health Education: An Integrated Approach; A Day Without Sight

Fourth graders hypothesize about the difficulties they may encounter if they did not have their sense of sight, in order to establish a sense of empathy for the disabled. In this lesson on senses, 4th graders record all of the things they have done up to this point in the day, then explain how they may have done those things if they were not able to see. Students further explore disabilities and how they affect people's lives while working in small groups.

It is so helpful to have so many resources on one website. Sources that used to take hours of hunting on line now take little time to locate. In the event of a change of plans or if I need sub plans for the day, my work is done.
