Tell us about how students prepared for this activity? Students read and discussed Sharing The Road With Large Trucks And Buses from the Tennessee Comprehensive Driver License Manual. How were students involved and impacted? Students participate during the classroom presentation and then they go outside to a truck and are allowed to get in the truck to actually see the perspective from the driver's seat. What were the best components about this activity? I feel being able to get in the driver's seat of the actual truck really puts things in perspective. The students always make comments about knowing the truck is big, but actually standing beside the truck allows them to see "how big" it really is.
