Disability Awareness Activities UnitGrades 4–8
It is important for classrooms to be an environment where students can openly speak and learn about disabilities and what it means to be "differently-abled". If a student doesn't understand why a person may act, move, look, or learn differently, it can lead to mockery, pity, avoidance, and bullying. Use this Disability Awareness Activities Unit to increase students' knowledge and understanding about disabilities. With this unit students will:
- Use multiple texts to learn about the variety, complexities, and stereotypes of disabilities
- Complete multiple reading and writing activities to gain a deeper understanding of disabilities
- Learn the importance of acceptance, overcoming obstacles, and friendship
