Total Pages 96 plus 29 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 2 Weeks


Erosion and deposition are important concepts for all students, even those in special education, to appreciate when it comes to keeping our Earth healthy. This science unit is meant to introduce the concept of erosion and deposition. There is a book with simple text and photos that helps build some basic knowledge of erosion and deposition, and the follow-up activities allow for practice and assessment. All the materials were developed for students with autism and special learning needs.

***I have also included digital versions of all the activities (including the experiments) that can be used for remote learning or in an independent learning center.

See Preview for a detailed look at the contents.
