George Upside Down unit includes over 70 pages of material developed for students with autism and other special learning needs. This unit has various activities to accompany the book, George Upside Down. The materials are designed to allow students with multiple levels of learning to access and engage in lessons learned through reading George Upside Down. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the travels of George as he goes through his day upside down. This repetition encourages deeper engagement of the book. Finally, many of the George Upside Down activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation. There is also a 13 page social story addressing on being silly and when it is ok and not ok to be silly which goes perfectly with this story and is great for students with autism and special learning needs.
