This post contains some more transport topic themed free printable worksheets/folder tasks. For any special education teacher working with students who need assistive communication interventions such as symbol support or PECS, some have been developed to meet specific speech and language targets and goals. These may be outlined in their IEP’s or EHCP plans.
Whilst I work in a special school and these resources have been designed for my groups of key stage 4 autistic learners they should be adaptable for use by a range of educators including developmental or specific learning difficulties. These free SEN teaching resources go with the Transport Resources part 1 blog. There should be at least two versions of each one. For writers/pre-writers and including InPrint (Widgit software) symbols. Again these are mostly in PowerPoint format so very easy to adapt and edit. I have found they meet a range of teaching methods including the TEACCH system and early intervention programs.
Air, Sea, Land Worksheet Pack.
To save clicking on multiple download links I have put all of the worksheets about vehicles that travel by air, sea, and land together in this free SEN worksheet bundle. See the slider for contents. What I do for my group of autistic students is print one copy of the matching sheet in black and white and then one colour version for laminating/matching. As in the picture below.
You might want to just use them as flashcards. All images are from unsplash.com and fully licensed. I like to use these images as they are good quality and a little more age-appropriate for my key stage 4 class.

Tactile Vehicle Bingo Printable Special Education Worksheet
I wanted to make our Transport topic bingo games a bit more tactile so printed images and stuck them onto a range of coloured milk bottle caps. This has the benefit of being easier to pick up. To extend the use of the game I hid the caps in a sensory tray and the students could match as they uncovered them. I also cut the boards into strips that become a patterning activity.

Vehicle Size Sorting
There are two options with this resource. Firstly sorting big and small using the same images of taxis and buses.
Secondly by sorting a range of vehicle images.
Commenting on Literacy worksheet – Transport themed resource
This resource is for those students who can copy write. Download the free transport commenting colour worksheet Students circle or write in the space at the bottom 6 sheets with identifying the vehicle and colour.
Car colour identification Worksheet
Very simple stick either the blue or red car onto the sheet.
Distance Measuring Worksheet/Communication board
A simple sheet for recording the distance a toy car goes when rolled (or pushed!) down a slope, in this case, some awesome bendy foam packaging. Included is a communication board to aid requesting/commenting for those when receptive or expressive language difficulties (every time I use one I think of more words I need but you get the idea.)
Very simple worksheet. Label 5 key parts of the car, a matching version (just add velcro!) and a writing version, The arrows are editable so just drag them to different areas, if you need to (wheels, wing mirrors etc.)
Cargo Ship Labeling
We did a practical task testing the capacity of different “container ships” (next entry) this was an extension task. Same as the car above really but with a sheet that can be used as a Jigsaw as well.
Cargo Ship Capacity Worksheet
Pile the weights in the boats until they sink and record the total here. If you don’t want to use a worksheet just sort and pile the weights and see which carried the most. This worksheet was a rush job I’ll admit. This container was a pre-packed salad and maybe a bit too buoyant as the weights are very light! Next week we will be using blocks to see how many”containers” the ships will hold. We will then move on to designing and making our own boats and testing these.
Number Plate Literacy Task
This is meant to be a bit of fun so could be edited to be a simple writing task. Change the example to whatever you want. You could just grey out some writing as a themed handwriting task etc. My original idea was to write our names in the style of a personalised plate so replace some letters with numbers. There is a larger version for those who like to write bigger. Also, a version that says classmates and one that says, friends to aid name recognition. Some of my students like to be specific.
Number Plate Numeracy Task.
Just some sums on a easily editable free number plate themed worksheet. The four number operations. You should be able to very quickly edit them to your needs. Change the sums, grey out if you need to overwrite etc.
