Product Description
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).

** PRODUCT UPDATE 3/15/17: I have changed the wording for some of the mini-book pages, AND have added an additional file. Now, when you download the file, you will open a zip folder. This folder includes the original PDF document, and a PowerPoint document. The PowerPoint document is an editable version of the mini-book. This is perfect for parents or teachers that want to highlight their own individual with DS. With this new mini-book, you can personalize each page with your child's name and pictures. **


This document includes:

♥Page 1: Cover Page

♥Page 2: Table of Contents

♥Pages 37-41: Rock Your Socks Activity. Rock Your Socks is a world-wide event that takes place on World Down Syndrome Day (3/21 , which represents three copies of the 21st chromosome) to spread awareness for individuals with Down syndrome. It is a fun event where people get to wear bright, mismatched socks to show their support. An explanation of this event is provided, with a note to send home if you wish to have your class participate. There is also an activity provided that ties in with this event. This activity demonstrates the beauty in us all being different and unique. Students will decorate their own sock template (two differentiated worksheets are provided) to describe themselves. When finished, students can look around and see the differences in the socks, but also pick out some similarities too.
