Hi everyone! I am interested in teaching a Special Education classroom and I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on different experiments or hands-on activities I can do in the future with Elementary Special Education students.

Hi! My name is Jane Mendez and I am a student teacher for Florida International University.  I think that the experiments you may be able to conduct with special needs students depend on their disorder and level of comprehension. However, I think NGSS and pinterest are great resources for searching for adequate experiments for special needs students. Also, maybe consult with a science teacher at your field school and inquire their opinion on experiments they think you would be able to conduct with the class. Best of luck in the future!
