I am in completely in love with The Autism Tank and her science units she has posted. I bought her unit for the month of September and added some of my own goodies along with some fun activities! Here is what I have planned for September! BODY PARTS/HUMAN BODY
I made cute science folders for the kiddo's and laminated them so that they can last all year. I then run off the months worksheets in advance so they are ready to go and easy to complete!
I then created a bunch of file folder games. Some of these I got off of boardmaker share, some off TpT for free, some from The Autism Tank and a few I made myself!
I ordered these goodies from Oriental Trading Company! I have a blow up skelton and a blow up digestive system! I plan on focusing on body parts for my lower kiddo's and challenging my older kiddo's with the "human body."
In The Autism Tank's Unit, she has Science vocabulary cards that I printed, glued to construction paper and laminated. I use this to test kids for understanding. I can ask questions such as, "Show me the mouth," "Point to the body part that you see with." We also play games and much more with these.
Body Part BINGO! (Boardmaker Share)
PUZZLES! I got these for a dollar at staples!
Vocabulary Cards (I made these myself!)
To keep it simple, I store all the science materials, games and folders in a crate. When it is science time I can pull it out easily. In the afternoon we do science in small groups. While I have two kids work out of their folder, three will play bingo, 2 with puzzles etc. I usually do science in a more casual manner and include lots of songs and games to make it fun and interactive!
AND WHO DOES NOT LOVE A MR. POTATO HEAD TO PRACTICE BODY PARTS? I mean common... it's perfect!
