File Size: 4 MB




This 66 page plus 26 google slides unit was designed for students with autism and special learning needs. This unit looks at the attributes of shapes, specifically sides, and angles. The books and activities look at straight and curved sides as well as counting sides and angles. There are suggestions for differentiation so all of your students are able to utilize most of the components in this unit.

NOTE: This unit does NOT work on the naming of shapes.

****This unit now contains digital activities. There are 26 google slides which include a differentiated set of slides and a movie version of the book.

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


Unit Includes:

  • 28 page book on sides and angles using photos (includes a movie version)
  • 13 page BW booklet on sides and angles
  • group and individual cut & paste sorting activities (includes digital activities)
  • worksheets to practice identifying and counting sides and angles (includes digital activities)
  • 26 google slides

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.
