Science and Work Task

So I've been trying for a couple of months how to teach science lessons to my sophomores and freshmen, while teaching the juniors and seniors other skills. 10th graders are the only high schoolers have a science unit during the CAPA(state test). During 1 of the periods, I split my class in half. My 9th and 10th graders worked with me and we work on science lessons. My 11th and 12th graders work with my aides on some work task skills. I found so many different work task from the autism helper. I decided to take some of her wonderful ideas and then created some of my own.
 Here are our science lessons. I can't remember where I got the project from. If you know who, please let me know so I could give the proper credit.
Here are some of my work task:

Sorting food into food groups.


Measure Liquids (I use food coloring so it is easier for my students to see the water.)
 Measuring playdo using rulers.

Writing Checks


  1. I'm your newest follower! Thanks for writing on my blog... it led me here! Your blog is cute and full of great info. It seems we teach a lot of the same children... we should link up soon on here!

  2. I am sooooo borrowing these ideas!!! (hope you don't mind)


  3. I'm needing ideas for work tasks too and these are pretty awesome. I was thinking of doing something like your food coloring measuring. How do you set them up for the students? Do you teach them the tasks at the beginning of the year and refresh the task throughout the year?? I'm new to independent tasks so I'm curious.
