PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pollution and Conservation Unit contains over 120 pages of material that will last 2 weeks specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on pollution and conservation addresses the problems of pollution and 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 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.

Also, please note that this is included in my unit on Photosynthesis which you can get by clicking the link below.

See the Preview for a detailed look at the contents.

*****************************************************************************
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 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.
