Pollution and Conservation Unit contains over 150 pages and 38 google slides of material that will last more than 2 weeks. It was specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism in later elementary and middle school. This unit on pollution and conservation addresses the problems of pollution and the importance of conservation in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on pollution and conservation and saving the Earth. This repetition encourages a true understanding of pollution and conservation. Finally, many of the pollution and conservation activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

I have totally redone this unit in April 2021. It now flows like all my other units and is easy to follow and print out.

****There are now digital versions of most of the activities from this unit. It includes 38 google slides and movie versions of the books.

See the Preview for a detailed look at the contents.


Pollution and Conservation Unit Includes:

  • 12-day lesson plan
  • 2 books: one on pollution and one on conservation (both also come in voice recorded powerpoints so you do not need to print them out) (includes movie version)
  • Vocabulary board
  • 12 Vocabulary cards
  • Vocabulary cut and paste (includes digital version)
  • LOTS of hands on activities
  • Cause and effect worksheets (includes digital version)
  • Sorting worksheets (includes digital version)
  • Weekly quizzes (includes digital version)
  • Vocabulary puzzles (includes digital version)
  • Assessment (includes digital version)


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!! Even when learning about pollution and conservation, 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 purchases 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.
