    Differentiation Lesson I saw this idea a few years ago on Pro Teacher. My students love it! On the first day of school, I call everyone to the carpet and we sit around in a circle.

    Saylor's Log: Differentiation. Love this bandaid lesson for teaching kids what it means to differentiate!

    I absolutely love this lesson! The Bandaid Lesson explains differentiation to students on the first day of school. Each student comes up to the teacher and tells her a pretend "boo boo" that they have. They are allowed to be creative. However, the teacher places a band aid on every student in the same place. Once everyone has gone, the teacher explains that everyone is different and she will help everyone learn differently.
