How Creative Are You?

  1. I'm not creative AT ALL. But, for an assignment, we need to make a teaching aid for either a self breast exam or a self testicular exam. The only thing I can come up with is a boring old poster board type assignment, and I'm sure the instructors have seen a million of those. Can anyone help me come up with a creative idea for teaching a person how to perform either a breast or testicular self exam? Thanks!

    how about sand and marbles? or some other substance that would work.....A heavy duty balloon....paint or put material over. make your own model breast or testes, and then do a posterboard to put next to it along with a pamplet that you create on word or somehing? People could find the could be really sneaky and throw a few dry peas in there as fibrocystic lumps as well.....just my idea....hope it gets the wheels rolling

    In micro, someone did a tick tack toe game with questions for the class (one question earns one mark, divide the class in half). You can give candy at the end. Teacher will like the participation, and kids like the free food. Alternatively, do you know how to use powerpoint? It's a program that helps you make very sharp presentations, you can show it either with a projector that fits onto the laptop (check w/ the media center) or print out transparencies (not cheap unfortunately and take a ton of ink). You should learn this program now because it will really help you if you ever go into management (god forbid) or even head a committee in the future. Hope this helps.

    along with the sand and marbles idea....... you could make a boob pillow and stuff it with stiff stuffing and put a marble inside.

    I just wanted to give an update on my project and thank everyone again for the great ideas! I made testicles out of playdough and used marbles as the suspicious lumps. I even used pipe cleaner as the vas deferens. I then put the testicles in knee highs and voila! It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Thanks again for the ideas!
