PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Earth Day is April 22 this year. This unit, created for students with autism and other special learning needs, celebrates Earth Day and has a power point with lots of animations and sounds to keep your students engaged as they learn about this important day. This unit was developed for students with autism and special learning needs. The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in science lessons on Earth Day. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on Earth Day, conservation and pollution. This repetition encourages true understanding why saving our Earth is important. Many of the Earth Day activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation. Finally, every effort is made for your students with autism to make their own personal connections to the concept of conservation and keeping our Earth healthy.

Please see preview for detailed look at the contents of this unit.

*****************************************************************************

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. Remember, you will gain credit toward future purchase on tpt as you leave more and more feedback!!

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future.

Please consider checking out my Conservation and Pollution Unit as a great companion to these materials:
