This meets Virginia Math SOL 1.16 and Science SOL 1.1 BUT can be used in any state when learning about classification and sorting. It includes sorting by size, sorting by color, sorting by shape and sorting by the number of sides a shape has!
There is also a critical thinking activity where the students have to think about why objects belong in a group and then add an example of their own. These pages can be made into an Interactive Notebook file or created as a Poster Project on a large poster board!
