This paper is about the adapted unit of instructions in science. The researcher examines a unit on plants from the first-grade Full Option Science System (FOSS). During the study, the researcher takes a closer look at the existing accommodation and modification of the FOSS unit and creates the necessary adaptations to accommodate the students with special needs from 3rd to 5th grade special day classes (SDC). The adapted unit of study and a survey were sent to special education teachers working at Norwalk–La Mirada Unified School District.
Using the feedback from the adapted unit of study and the responses from the survey, the researcher assessed whether the unit was properly adapted, if the teachers found it useful, if they will be using it or if they had any recommendations about the unit of study. The paper ends with recommendations on how to properly adapt science lessons in SDC.
