Background For Teachers:
The teacher needs to have everything out and organized for the lab and for the students to carry out the struggles they will face.
The teacher needs to know and share with the students the struggles all older people experience. The teacher may choose to dress up as an older person for extra special effects.
Student Prior Knowledge:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Two 8-inch pieces of duct tape. (I rip it off and tape it to the table's edge by each person until they are ready to put it on.)
Hand out a cotton ball per person. (Tell the students to get a pair of scissors to cut the cotton ball in half.)
Pass out a pair of glasses for each student. (I purchased an assortment of reading glasses from All-A-Dollar. After the students get their glasses, pass out a bottle of Vaseline and have each of the students put a very small amount of Vaseline on the inside of the lens.)
Make sure that once you begin the lab that everything stays on and cannot be removed until the lab is over or the teacher permits it. They may begin by washing their hands. Then place a strip of duct tape tightly around at least two or more knuckles of their choice, per hand. Cut the cotton ball in half and place it in each ear. Place the Vaseline in the glasses and put the glasses on. We will now begin the lab.
Make sure all of the ingredients are out on the supply table for the students to use. They will prepare the chocolate cake. While it is baking, they may prepare the frosting.
When the cake is out of the oven and cooled, the students may want to sample some salt-free crackers as a snack. Do not tell them they are salt-free. Arrange them nicely on a plate or tray.
Prepare some Kool-aid that has been diluted or let each unit prepare their own.
The students will set their tables and frost and eat their cake. They will clean up their units.
The assignment due at the start of class next time is to write a one-page paper about today's experience preparing and eating the chocolate cake as an older adult.
