Are you studying phases of matter with your Special Education students and need some fun interactive lessons? Try this lesson out. I made it for my Special Education kiddos while we were doing a unit on the phases of matter and studying solids, liquids and gases.
This interactive smartboard lesson incorporates answering yes/no questions as well as using adjectives to describe a picture. Students will pop a balloon to reveal the picture. Then they will sort words by whether or not the word describes the picture/object. For example the students will pop the balloon and reveal water. Students will then sort words such as: solid, liquid, gas, wet, tall, dry, etc. into "yes" for if it describes it and "no" for if it doesn't. Words will be absorbed into the vortex if it is correct and bounce back if it isn't.
This is a great way to work on answering "wh" questions, yes/no questions, as well as incorporating categories and descriptions into one lesson. My speech teacher would be so proud ;)
