Do you need a way to make use of the natural materials gathering dust on your classroom nature table? Then this is the pack for you!

These Natural Materials Sorting Mats make an excellent independent work station for your classroom nature table, or make perfect display mats for all the special 'treasures' your little ones bring you! (30+ pages, in color, black and white). Get your children happily engrossed in grouping, matching, sorting, organising, arranging, categorizing and exploring patterning!

Please check out the preview for a closer look at the resources in this pack! Included are:

• 30+ Nature Table Sorting Mats (most in color and black and white for your printing convenience). Place the mat of your choice on a tray and then pick different natural materials from the nature table to lay on top of the images. There are a range of mats included to suit different abilities....from quite prescriptive to creative exploration, there is sure to be one to appeal to most children!
• Mat themes include: decorate the peacocks tail; add feathers to the birds; add flowers to the flower pot; try to find real leaves and shells to match the ones on the mats; abstract circles and patterns to spark the children's decorating and arranging imaginations; a selection of blank borders, frames and boxes, a basic Venn diagram plus many more!
