I think this lesson is great just at it is.
You can use this with ESE students without a doubt.This lesson has a lot of activities and hands on which is great for ESE students. You might want to make it a bit more simple but not by much, depending on what your kids need.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to adapt this lesson for students with special needs, both physical and mental? I love the lesson, but I have to write a paper analyzing how every student could be taught. Thanks!

I reviewed this lesson for my curriculum development of the gifted. It was a good lesson unit.
