Goal

Through the use of multiple hands-on activities throughout the school year students will be able to achieve a well rounded understanding of applied scientific theories in the real world. Students will use these hands on materials to maintain engagement in science.  

 

What will be done with my students

Hands on workshops with the use of different activity kits will help students see different scientific concepts become concrete. Students will use the different kits that align with their current unit of study in science to help support the main concepts that they are learning about.

Some of these units of study include electricity, plants, animals, and the solar system.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will be able to practice different scientific experiments and have a concrete understanding of the scientific method. 

 

Describe the Students

The students in the class are all on the Autism Spectrum. The class is also a mix of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. They all have a high interest in science and seek opportunities to participate in sensory oriented activities. Some of the students are on a gifted level and others are on a lower level of cognitive abilities. The students work off of a blended curriculum for all grades with emphasis on explicit instruction tailored to their abilities and needs.
