Tips for Adapting Lessons for Distanced and Remote Learners!
Each week, we provide two new lesson opportunities. Some will be very easy to adapt to a distanced classroom setting while others may require a bit more thinking. We're here to help with that! Remember, you can skip any lessons you choose and still provide your students with a great mission experience. Even under normal conditions, it is rare that a class does EVERY lesson associated with a mission, so be kind to yourselves. Less really can be more!
That being said, I'll add to this page weekly so you can find adaptation ideas for the lessons you DO choose to do.
Remote: Send the blubber glove assembly directions home to adults. If they are unable to construct a glove, demonstrate the use of a blubber glove during your class meeting or with a video on your LMS. Then challenge students to create two or more insulating designs as described in the lesson and compare them to find the most effective solution. Encourage them to be creative in their materials choices and use what is on hand. Remember to check the recycling bin too!
