These hands on, low prep categorizing activities will get your students learning while having fun. The picture activities for 12 different categories are great for differentiated instruction, making your planning easier. Kids love it when they can work at their level yet still do the ‘same’ work as their peers.

Activities include:
1. 8 worksheets for matching categories (from 4 to 6 pairs per page.)
2. Sort pictures by category on the 4 sorting boards as an activity, or cut & glue!
3. Dominoes game- match categories or compare/contrast.
4. 12 puzzles to put together as an activity, or cut and glue!
5. 6 maze worksheets to connect all of the items in the same category.
6. Follow directions with descriptions using the maze worksheets.
7. Color all the items that go together using the maze worksheets.
