Make a Spinning Selfie
We’ve created an activity guide on Spinning Selfies inspired by The Girl who Thought in Pictures: The Story of Dr. Temple Grandin written by Julia Finley Mosca and illustrated by Daniel Rieley. Dr. Grandin is an incredible scientist, animal rights advocate, and spokesperson on autism and neurodiversity. We’ve added this book to the Chill Zone at reDiscover Center. Explore how your brain works by making your own Spinning Selfie using recycled materials from home!

For Adult Helpers
One option, depending on how young the activity guide is directed toward, is to give tips to adults who are assisting. Let them know what parts might need help, and when they should let the kids try it on their own for a bit before jumping in to do it for them. If there are any guiding questions you haven't included elsewhere, this is a good place for it. Perhaps suggest a way that the adults can share a relevant experience of their own.
Activity guides for Facilitators and teachers are a different ball of wax. They include a lot more about prepping and running the activity, especially for a group. They might include a list of the Standards they incorporate. Those have a different activity guide template.
