Sorts are the perfect way for my students to practice what they know! Make sure that your students are able to tell the difference between some of the key terms and vocabulary involved in this important topic. This would be a perfect assessment or interactive notebook activity after teaching about adaptations of living things. This activity meets Georgia's Standards for Science in third grade but are general vocabulary words. They could be used in classrooms in other states as well with no problem. Students are asked to cut out each sentence or picture and match it with the following words:
adapt, adaptation, aquatic animal, behavior, camouflage, carnivorous plant, characteristic, environment, extinct, habitat, hibernate, migrate, mimicry, predator, prey, talons
They then glue under the correct heading on the included sheet OR paste into a science interactive journal. An answer key is included for easy grading.
