United States Geography DIGITAL Unit for Special Education



Total Pages 102 google slides
Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 3 Weeks


United States Geography Unit contains over 100 slides of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on the geography of the United States addresses the 5 geographical regions of the United States in a simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material whether learning about Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, or Western region. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the different geographical regions of the United States. This repetition encourages true appreciation of the geography of the United States. Finally, all of the google slides come in a fully differentiated version to support all learners.

You can also find this unit in print-only version with even more activities. CLICK HERE to see the print-only version.

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.
