Yep you read that title write. I wrote research. Yes research. As in my little bundles of joy learned about researching. Yes – children with autism. They are brilliant. I am in awe. Again. They never cease to amaze me. We are getting so advanced sometimes that I get nervous. I was nervous making this worksheet and handing it to them. I don’t know why. They did freaken awesome. Further solidifies the neverending truth: you need to keep challenging your kids. You’ll never know what they can’t do until you try.
And a little secret bonus: my principal stopped by with some visitors while we were doing this and not gonna lie I felt pretty gangsta when one I my kids told him we were currently researching penguins. Damn.
Here’s your freebie today. Don’t be afraid! Give it a shot. This is not an independent activity. They needed a lot of support. But it’ll get there. I made it general so you could use it for any topic. I will be using this a ton!
I also made a visual version for my students who need more visual support:
We did this as part of thematic penguin unit! There were some super great videos at kids national geographic if you are interested in doing some penguin research!
Want to see the cutest and most hilarious part of this lesson. In the reference section I told them to write kids.national geographic.com and my guy wrote the word dot. Ha. So literal 🙂
