Creating Prescriptions…

Over the past weeks we have been deciding what our magic pills will do if they are taken. To inspire the kids we used packets of mini m and m’s. Each coloured m and m represented a different pill and what it was for. The only limitation to what the pills could do was the imagination of our grade twos. There were ones that made you invisible, strong, creative and colourful. We had a lot of fun with this activity 🙂

We also took a look at prescription labels and what information is on them. We had a go at filling one out. We included the Doctor’s name, date, directions and what the medicine would do for the patient. After some discussion and debating as a class we came up with what we would all write on the prescription label.
