Muscular Dystrophy: A Walk in Their Shoes

Health and biology learners wear five pound weights on their legs for 24 hours to simulate the extra effort required when people suffer from muscular dystrophy. They research the disability online and write about how it feels to "walk in their shoes." Note that this could be a sensitive subject and is intended for mature teens.
