If you teach students with special needs, you know curriculum is hard to come by. We spend hours each week searching, creating, and modifying to fit our needs.
With Science and social studies, this seems like an impossible hunt. It takes a lot to break down these complex topics and meet what the grade level peers are working on. For some of us, we are required to do so to meet state testing requirements. This year, I am trying to take some stress off of the topic, and create some resources with topics that can be widely used and appropriate for students of all ages on these topics.
Here is what I have come up with so far!
Meet Simple Social Studies!
So far, I only have one unit available, and am looking forward to suggestions for other units! Presidents and Leaders takes a look at the lives of some famous men in our history that are often learned about in general education classrooms!
Each book has 2-4 comprehension questions at the end to check for understanding.
Meet Simple Science!
For Simple science, I focused on some topics that can be used for state assessments, and that relate to big products they study at the elementary level. Each book contains a matching component with opportunities to match pictures or words. They are at a very low, simple level perfect for early learners!
Each book has either word or picture matching, and comprehension questions at the end!
I’m looking forward to adding to this series and will gladly take your suggestions in the comments below!
