Perfect for a transportation unit or your vehicle-loving students! This activity targets categorization in an interactive way by asking students to identify all the cars that complete each category train. Provide scaffolding by presenting an engine with a category name or make the activity more open-ended by having students identify which cars and engines go together. Use the building mat to provide a structured work space for students to place the cards they've selected or to present a smaller field of cards to choose from.
-6 engine cards featuring category names
