Integrated Skills – Laundry

Use daily living activities to practice a variety of independence skills.

This activity has been revised and was originally created by Mary Jane Clark and published in the Perkins Activity and Resource Guide (1st edition, 1992).  The second edition is available for purchase.

This activity allows teachers to use a natural setting to teach academic skills, which then helps the students apply these skills to their independent living needs. Lessons include sequencing, sorting, reading/listening, money, measurement, time, and motor skills.

Adjust the instructions accordingly for laundry being done at home versus in a coin-operated situation.
