The centers are always new, and I know a great deal of time and planning must go into each one. I even picked up a few things that I can use with my students next year,\u201d stated Johnson.\r\n\r\nA group of eight-second year students and their facilitator Larry Davis, Ph.D. presented a program that involved handouts, laptops, models, games, demonstrations, hands-on activities and videos. Each second grade student rotated in groups between four stations that were set up in the classroom.\r\n\r\n\u201cOne of the students\u2019 favorite centers involved the Otoscope; students were able to look into a real ear canal and see the eardrum of peers and WVSOM students. \u201cIt\u2019s one thing to look at a diagram or model and talk about the internal parts of the Ear, but to actually be able to see an eardrum was amazing to my students and something they won\u2019t forget,\u201d stated Johnson.\u00a0 At the end of the program, time was provided for questions and answers.\r\n\r\nWVSOM students ended their visit by having a type of Jeopardy\/buzzer game set up for the students after the presentation. Students were again placed into four groups and had to buzz in to answer questions from the information they learned during their class unit and the WVSOM presentation.\u00a0 Winning groups received prizes for correct answers.\r\n\r\n\u201cThis was an awesome way for my students to review for their ear test, as well as winning some prizes,\u201d said Johnson.\r\n\r\nIf your group or organization is looking for presenters on health issues, contact Larry Davis, Ph.D. at WVSOM at 304-647-6231 and schedule a presentation.
