PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Spider Unit contains over 60 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on spiders addresses the characteristics of spiders versus insects 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 spiders. This repetition encourages true understanding of what makes something a spider rather than an insect. Finally, many of the spider activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation. Your students are sure to love 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 Very Busy Spider Literacy Unit as a great companion to these materials:
