Metric Measurement Bundle for Special Education PRINT and DIGITAL


This Metric Bundle contains over 350 pages and google slides that address the concept of measuring length, weight and volume using the METRIC system. Each unit first explores the appropriate unit of measure and then introduces the concept of either using the appropriate tools or calculating the actual value (as in volume). This material was specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. These units on measurement address various units and tools 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 measurement. This repetition encourages true understanding of appropriate units, proper use of tools and calculations. Finally, many of the activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

See the preview for a detailed look at the contents.

EACH Unit Includes:

  • lesson plan
  • 2 books on measuring
  • Group activities
  • Circle maps
  • Ordering activities
  • Sorting activities
  • 2 worksheet sets for additional practice
  • Assessments
  • Digital versions of the activities

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. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future.
