Reflection: Students with Disabilities Human Power: Doing Work - Section 2: Engage


 Since this activity requires students to utilize their upper body strength, you may find that you have some students who you may need to modify this for based on their individual needs. You can  adjust the model for individual student needs, for instance, if you have a student in a wheelchair you could shorten the length of the string and use a smaller bottle (1 L for instance). If you  do not feel safe allowing your students to climb on top of lab benches or counters, or do not allow this in your room, then shorten the strings so that when the students are holding the bottles in front of them with their arms at 90° the bottles do not touch the floor.  If you have a stairwell or balcony that they could stand over, and would not endanger people below, you could also have them use a longer wrote and hang the bottle at a longer distance should you choose to do so.
