Left Versus Right

Use these tips for developing comprehension of left and right.

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Kathy Heydt and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

Many young students have difficulty learning their right from their left. This activity teaches students to distinguish their right side from their left, in addition to improving body awareness. Lessons include Early Cognitive Skills/Concept Development, English Language Arts, and Orientation and Mobility.

Hint: Do not use weights on students with spasticity.
