This interactive activity helps students practice the skills needed to wash a load of clothing in a washing machine. Many special education students struggle knowing how to correctly use common household appliances, and are therefore reliant on others to help them with this process. If you are looking for an interactive lesson that has students simulate what it is like to do it on their own, this activity brings learning to life. Students read the prompts on the screen and then press the buttons on the washing machine to customize their wash. Students get immediate feedback for each entry. A total of SIX scenarios are included in this lesson. Each scenario has students practice (1) turning the washing machine on (2) selecting the correct type of load to wash (3) selecting the correct water temperature (4) selecting the correct cycle speed (5) selecting the correct soil level and (6) starting up the washing machine after entering all their selections.

❤️ How I Use This In My Classroom ❤️

This activity is very versatile and can be used as a whole group lesson, small group work, or independent practice as well. For a whole group lesson, present the game to the class and have students take turns pressing the keys for each item. You can have students enter responses for each slide individually or by doing a complete laundry scenario themselves. This can also easily be replicated in small groups as well, with more attention given to knowing what the different buttons means and scenarios where you would need to select different settings (ex: water temp, cycle speed, etc.). Finally, when students have mastered the basic concepts of this activity, you can have them practice it on their own independently.
