In Teen Living we have been talking about families. And since the elderly are an important part of every family we spent some time discussing the aging process. Students participated in an "aging simulation" so they could experience what happens as the body ages. Here is a pic of the students wearing their glasses.
The red glasses distorted their vision and their perception of color. They had cotton balls in their ears to simulate hearing loss and tape on their fingers to simulate arthritis. It made for a challenging class period. Students ended up talking really loud to each other so they could hear each other. It was fun!
