★See preview to see visuals of activities!★


1) Photo sort: Students sort photographs of different sports balls and come up with words to describe the different textures.

2) Texture Hunt: To reinforce words to describe texture, students hunt for object that are rough, smooth, soft or hard in the classroom or playground.

3) QR Code or "Around the Room" activity: QR codes are linked to photographs for students to describe and record their texture. The same photographs are also in a printable format to easily print and tape around the room.

4) Property Sort: "What property are the objects grouped by?" Students analyze each task card with a collection of images and decide what property they all have in common (size, shape, color or texture). 20 cards included!

5) Independent Sort - Printable to assess mastery! Similar to the property sort, students decide what property the pictures have in common.

This pack focuses on describing/distinguishing textures and analyzing the properties of objects. This works perfect for my 1st grades at the end of our properties of matter unit. :)
