Many classroom units cover famous blind people using Braille, including Louis Braille and Helen Keller. This lesson packet includes activities for sighted students to practice learning the Braille Code with fun activity sheets. Many of the activities can be used in centers, whole group instruction or sent home for spelling homework.
We use this as part of a Helen Keller study. It has Braille alphabet. This printable also includes an area where kids can write their name in Braille. For added fun once they shade in the dots, go over the dots with school glue. It will take a while to dry, but the kids can get an idea of how it would feel to read to Braille.
