PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Is your class studying animals? This is a set of 4 sorting center activities for the characteristics of animals. The sorts deal with: where animals live, how many legs animals have, types of skin coverings, and how animals get around. Students will cut out pictures of animals and sort between four categories, which means no cutting and laminating for you!

These sorts also coordinate with my Animal Research Book for Primary Grades.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  November 13, 2012,  Buyer asked:
I ordered this and have been using this in my classroom. The students are enjoying it, but I do have a question. Under the one about skin coverings, one of the lables is shell, there are no animals pictured that have a shell. The topic of how many legs doesn't have a picture of an animal with 8 legs to go under the label of eight legs. Is there something I am missing?

On  November 13, 2012Raki's Rad Resources answered:
Thank you for your question. There is nothing in those sections on purpose. Whenever I do sorts, I try to talk to my kids about the fact that although there is a category, that doesn't automatically mean something will fall there. This prepares them for the type of thinking that goes into "all of the above" and "none of the above" questions that comes up on my standardized tests, as well as many real world situations. Sometimes, during a review, I will ask students to draw in something that might have fit into that empty category.
