Product description


Teach your students to follow instructions and directions while working on visual memory, visual discrimination, sequencing and motor planning at the same time! This set works on so many skills at once!

Often times our students with special needs have a difficult time following verbal directions. This set lets your students work on a variety of skills, while allowing them to meet success by providing them with the visuals they need to complete tasks independently!


  • 80 Ice Cream Cone Pattern / Sequencing Cards
  • Clear photographs of Ice Cream Scoops and Ice Cream Cones
  • Each pattern/sequencing card shows a completed ice-cream cone
  • Ice Cream Cone Pattern/ Sequencing Cards range from 2-8 pieces.
  • 5 Game Ideas for partner/ whole class instruction.

Use the cards at an independent workstation or turn it into a partner/ whole class activity by using the game options.


Individual Task Bin:

If your student is overwhelmed by the larger snowmen combinations- teach them to cover everything on the card above the layer they are currently working, moving it up with each piece they add.


Visual Perceptual Work:

Build a sushi platter using one of the cards then set out a few cards below it. Have your student determine which sushi platter your built.

This could also be a partner work-where one student is working on completing the task and the other student is only working on the visual perceptual piece.

Great Resource!

I used the build a burger with my high school students with Intellectual Disabilities, and they had a blast! I adapted it several different ways, depending on ability level. The pictures are my students that require a little more help. We out magnets on the back and let them put together a burger chosen from the "menu" by their partner. Then they switched. We added texture to some so our visually impaired student could participate. For the students who are able to work more independently, we ran it like a restaurant, with guests, servers, and cooks. This is a fantastic resource!

What can I say, I love it!
It’s great! This is so useful at this time because of not being able to leave the campus.
Also it is great to access online for distance learners!! Thank you!

Build a Burger for Life Skills & Job Training

I absolutely LOVE the Build a Burger Task bin activity! The photos are crisp and clear, they are easy to print at home, and look even better when laminated!
I am bummed I didn't purchase it when you were giving away the free bonus with the extra items (taco, sandwich, ice cream cone, pizza, sundae, sushi, potato, pasta, set of chocolates), but it is still worth it after how well it turned out.
I am using the set virtually right now, and created a felt board to do a velcro display with the burgers.
When I am able to return to campus, I will definitely print more out and use them in our weekly activities at school, in my Adult Transition class.

Oh my gosh!!!!

I have 7 teens and young adults with disabilities (6 with Down syndrome, one with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) These days of distance learning is NOT working for them!!! I was particularly stuck on job skills for my two young adults who are now quarantined at home. Then I saw an ad for AdaptEd4SpecialEd! WOW! This is exactly what we needed!!! After a simple download process I sent everything to my local printer and had it shipped to my house the same day. Then I laminated and cut it all out. Here are pics of what my young adults are doing today:
19 yo Axel and 23 yo Angela are working in the Chicken Burger Shop. One is the customer orders, the other fills the order and brings it back to the customer. The customer checks to make sure they got the right food before they drive away. Sometimes the order needs correcting. 😀 Tomorrow we’ll have a family donut shop (with Dad picking up real donuts!)

Build a Burger is the Best!

My middle school Life Skills students absolutely love this hands on activity! Everything looks real and high quality. They love using both the photo cards and the order forms to build the burgers. We also added post-its with the ingredient words for them to sort and label so it hits some reading and spelling skills as well. Held their attention quite a while too. Was worth the effort to print in color, laminate and cut out!
