A wonderful resource with so much included! I used with my 5th grade class for World DOwn Syndrome Day and they loved learning about DS. The movie links were especially engaging!
I love this for my students to be able to learn about one of their classmates and it was such age appropriate for them!

This is a useful resource for teaching elementary students about Down syndrome, friendship, and acceptance. This can be applied in October (Down syndrome Awareness Month) or on March 21st for World Down Syndrome Day (3/21 which represents three copies of the 21st chromosome). Although those specific dates are perfect times to talk about Down syndrome, these activities and lessons can be implemented any day of the year, because it focuses on important topics covered a lot in school (inclusion, acceptance, being different, making connections, bullying, and communication).
