My community is going through a *MAJOR* heat wave right now… and considering I live in Canada, you would think that the end of September would mean sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattés, and fall boots. However, Quebec is seeing record high temperatures and humidity levels. What does that mean for me as a teacher and my students? That means that our air condition-less classroom is hot, sticky, and stifling. Teaching and learning a real challenge when the temperature of your classroom reaches 36 degrees Celsius with 25 bodies aching for swimming pools and slushy drinks!
One great way to combat the heat is to use GEL PACKS!
I happen to have quite a few of these because I subscribe to a food delivery service and I am unable to give them back to the company to recycle. Just pop these in the fridge for about an hour and you’ll have instant coolness that can be easily moulded to necks, heads, shoulders, etc… giving instant relief from the heat!
These gel packs are perfect for me and my students. They
cool quickly in the fridge, are easily stackable, and can be rinsed off quickly. Plus, they are versatile enough to be used for the eventual bumps and bruises that occur throughout the year.
Ask your students to bring in gel packs, or even ice packs, to help combat the heat. Your students, and their parents, will be glad that you did!
Have a great day!
