Mega Science BUNDLE for Special Education

$36.80

This BUNDLE contains 4 of my science units for middle and high school students who have special learning needs, especially autism. This unit addresses some of the main science concepts in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. It covers physical and chemical changes, effects of heat, the scientific method and the lives of 5 famous scientists. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the many these important basic science concepts. This repetition encourages true understanding the importance of science in our everyday lives. In addition, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

✩✩✩ Thanks to a suggestion from a buyer, I am now going to be including a PRE-RECORDED POWER POINT SHOW with automated advancement to use in your lesson or for students to listen to on their own. If you find this helpful, be sure to let me know in the feedback. I may go back and add this to many of my other units.

✩✩✩All of the units in this BUNDLE already contains detailed lesson plans!!

See the preview for a more detailed look at the contents.

*****************************************************************************

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. Plus, it just means a lot to me.
