Lava Lamp Relaxation

Last week I visited a high school classroom for students with autism during their "down" time.  The students all had a choice of leisure manipulatives for fidgeting and other activities to pursue during the brief period after lunch and before returning to academic and vocational tasks.  Despite having these options available, a few students appeared agitated.

I plan to ask the teacher if she would like to try using one of these very homemade videos as a backdrop to the students' down time.  Just listening to the ticking clock calms me within seconds.
