Walk the line!
Today we discussed the differences between drugs and medicine! We had conversation about what drugs and medicine do to use, why we choose to use them, where we get them, and shared stories about past experiences/or connections we had to either one. To allow the students to get a feeling of the effects of alcohol on a person drinking alcohol I had them spin around ten times really fast. They then need to walk heal to toe for about 10 steps. The results definitely showed how someone might feel if they have had to much to drink and how it impairs their coordination and sense of direction/balance. Many of my students felt dizzy, could not walk straight, fell, and did not like loser their ability to coordinate all their senses and and body!
