Third graders learned about physical disabilities from a workshop. They were able to watch these inspiring videos:
In the performance center, third grade learners were able to try out many different tools that differently abled people use to accomplish daily tasks. Click here to see pictures of their experiences. Ask your child what they are learning about people who have different abilities.
This afternoon, Jerry Scandiffio, a prosthetist, came and spoke to the children. He showed them many different prosthesis that he, himself made. He then surprised the children by showing them his own prosthetic leg. The kids were surprised they couldn't tell when they first saw him! Jerry taught the children all the different things he can do despite the fact that he wears a prosthesis. He even showed us his prosthesis for when he plays ice hockey!
Ask your third grader to teach you all they learned today.
