This is a sorting & classifying activity to teach students about food groups. This set contains classification cards for Bread & Grains, Vegetables, Fruits, Meat & Eggs, Milk & Dairy, and Sweets. This is a great activity for a classroom Science Center for Preschool, Pre-K, Kindergarten, & First Grade. The activity uses real photographs of the foods.
I love the real photos, I can't wait to share this one with my son, trying to get him to have as much to do with food as possible and this catergorising activity is perfect. Thank you for creating and sharing another fabulous packet.
There are 6 mats with a total of 36 food pictures. The mats are color-coordinated, but the individual food cards are not - that would give the answer away & make it too easy. However, if you wanted the food cards to be color-coordinated, you can just print 2 copies of the food group mats, and cut out one set to where it had the colored border on each food card. Hope this helps!
