Total Pages: 129
File Size: 12 MB



Go on a virtual field trip to South Korea! This unit contains over 100 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on South Korea explores foods, landscape, people, churches, and cities (including Pyeongchong) in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material when learning about this unique and fascinating culture. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on features and traditions of South Korea. This repetition encourages true appreciation for this country. Many activities and assessments include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation and options for presentation.

This unit also includes a modified version of the virtual field trip in case you do not have access to technology or YouTube.

See the preview for a detailed look at the contents.

• Coloring map of South Korea (differentiated)

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.
