One of the key components of independent living as an adult is grocery shopping. Bagging groceries at the end of a shopping trip can be especially challenging for individuals with vision impairments. Specific instruction in this activity can help students prepare to do this activity as adults in their own daily lives. It is also a valuable transferrable skill for employment. Although this activity centers specifically around bagging grocery items, it also helps students to learn skills such as sorting, organization, planning, concept development (i.e. what does a box of spaghetti look like?), and problem solving.
