Lesson plan

What Are You Wearing?

Encourage socialization and concept development with these conversation starters!

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

This activity is useful both for teaching students to name articles of clothing, as well as improving their use of descriptive language. Lessons include English Language Arts, Early Cognitive Skills/Concept Development, and Independent Living.

Students’ own clothing

Hint: Talk to students about what they are wearing when they are getting dressed. Let them figure out what they should put on first, what is appropriate for the weather or the activity.Shoes
