I love sorting activities and so do the kids.
20 problems for students to sort into linear and non-linear categories.
There are many ways that you could use this, but here is how I use it.
• Print the headings on one color of paper. Print the problems on a different color of paper. Cut and store in zip lock bags. I have about 15 sets.
• Students are in pairs.
• Students place the headings at top of their desks.
• Students then decide where each problem goes and places the card under the correct heading.
• I quickly scan the cards to make sure they are correct. If not, I pull the cards that are not in the correct heading, and they try again.
I use this as a warm up activity for about 5 minutes. The first students that finish usually help me check the others.
