The sorts can be used in one of two ways:

-Students can cut, sort, and glue the pictures into the Animal Relationships booklet included in this document. Each page has the same information as on the notebook strips.

Also included:
A foldable to review vocabulary is included for use in interactive notebooks. If you choose to use the sort booklet, the vocabulary is printed on the back of the booklet. Vocabulary Words: Adaptation, Camouflage, Mimicry, Hibernation, Migration


I have found that the hands-on sorting practice has really helped my students better understand the concepts listed above. Since I first started using this product in my classroom, my unit test scores have gone up. I typically teach each concept (grouped into numbers above) and then review with an independent sort before moving on to the next concept. There have been a couple times I thought my students really understood and then they were unable to correctly sort the pictures and I realized I needed to reteach.

These sorts are quick, easy, and make a great addition to our science interactive notebooks. My third graders love notebooking and view it as a scrapbook of their learning. I have developed a couple ways to scaffold this product over the years including giving only a couple pictures at a time to struggling students and having early finishers turn their sort into sentences or paragraphs.
