Students use a dictionary to sort words into categories. This set includes 4 sets of words that students must look up in the dictionary and sort into the appropriate categories.
Things You Eat, Things You Read
Things You Wear, Things You Ride In
Types of Shelters, Types of Animals
Types of Dances, Types of Instruments
Can be used for different age groups. For younger students, I place each set (2 categories, 7 words each) in a baggy for them to sort. For my 4th/5th grade students, I give students all of the words and heading cards and this creates more of a challenge. They love this activity and it's great practice for them, as well as a great assessment for me to use.
