I really like the idea of having the student draw their own picture and writing about it! I think that having them create something of interest to them is a great way to engage them in the activity. I also like the fact that you discuss as a class prior to the lesson "what is an animal?" I also like the fact that you are praising students for what they are doing well and if the writing is illegible, you are having the students read it to you! One thing I may consider in this lesson would be to allow some students to start with picking a picture of an animal to write about or allowing them to cut out pictures of animals and create an animal. Using imagination may sometimes be difficult for students with ASD because it is an abstract concept so it may be challenging for them to initially come up with an animal on their own. Overall, great lesson!

      I really like this mini-lesson; quick and easy. It addressed good instruction on animals and zoo-life but also related it back to the students interests. Showing an example of the teachers favorite... more
