Many special education students benefit from community outings to help them build connections to the real world. Although community based instruction (CBI) is an invaluable tool in many life skills teachers' classrooms, it ultimately requires a lot of coordination, staff, funding, and pre-teaching as well. Help to alleviate some of the stress by introducing your students to VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS!

My VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS each focus on a specific community outing and scaffold students through the process of several smaller tasks they might need while actually visiting the location. This specific activity has a GOING TO THE MALL theme to it and allows students to practice several skills that are required while using going shopping at the mall. These activities provide hands-on exposure, are very interactive, and are specifically broken down into smaller (more manageable) tasks so students can experience mastery as they work through the virtual steps.

This activity is specifically formatted to be used with Google Drive and is compatible with Google Classroom. Google Drive is an amazing resource that many educators are now using as an interface to support 1:1 digital instruction in the classroom. I pair it up with Google Classroom (a free website) that allows me to digitally send each student in my class a copy of the worksheets that they later submit to me for grading. With this lesson, students are able to drag and drop a variety of objects into their correct locations. It is an amazing paper-free process and the kids LOVE working on these worksheets on the computer.

Some activities students will practice in this lesson include selecting the correct store to buy items from, picking gifts that are within your budget, paying for items, using an escalator, and going to the food court as well.
