What is a Stand and Sort?
A stand and sort activity allows students to get out of their seats and move around while demonstrating their knowledge of economic concepts. Category signs are taped on the wall in various locations in the classroom. Students (or groups of students) are given characteristic/example cards. Students use their knowledge of the content to determine (based on their card) what category sign they must stand under. The cards can be reshuffled and the activity can be repeated. A stand and sort can be completed as an individual or a group. More thorough instructions for classroom use are included in this product.
