Periodic Table Unit for Special Ed for google classroom | Distance learning


Total Pages 145 pages plus 67 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 3 Weeks


This unit on the Periodic Table was created for students with autism and special learning needs in middle and high school. It contains 145 pages from my original, print only resource on the periodic table, PLUS it contains 67 google slides that are digital versions for 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 plus 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.

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.
