The Seasons unit contains 153 pages and 41 google slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism who are in middle and high school. This unit addresses the relationship between the Earth, sun and how that affects the seasons 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 learning about how the position of the Earth as it orbits the sun, affects the seasons. This repetition encourages true understanding of this very abstract concept. In addition, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

This unit does NOT address the characteristics of each season. You will find that information in my units on each season that you can purchase separately or in a bundle.

✩✩✩This unit now includes digital versions of the activities. There are 41 google slides and a movie version of the book.

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 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. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
