Total Pages: 70
File Size: 8 MB


This unit on life in Colonial America was created for students with autism and special learning needs in later elementary and middle school. It contains everything from my original, print only resource on Colonial America, PLUS it contains digital versions of all the activities.

These digital activities were created using google slides and can be used with google classroom.

Each digital activity comes in 2 versions. The original and one with color-coding to add more visual support for students who need the extra help. There is also a link to a movie version of the book included in the unit you can have students watch on-line.

There are directions on how to access the digital activities and movie in a pdf included in this unit. There are also suggestions on the easiest way to assign the appropriate activities to each student.

See preview for a detailed look at the contents.
