Your students will love learning about nocturnal animals and what it means to be nocturnal with this fun sorting game! I like to teach a unit on animals and I have my students complete this activity by sorting pictures of different animals by deciding if they are animals that are nocturnal (awake at night) or diurnal (awake during the day). Prior to the activity, we talk about different types of animals, and what it means to be nocturnal and diurnal. As a whole group, we sort the animals, and then I set it out as a science center activity. I have included a color version and a black and white version, which can be easily printed and colored to look like the color version, as well as a recording sheet to hold your students accountable for their work. There are two sorting mats: one for nocturnal animals and another for diurnal animals. There are also 12 pictures of different animals. 6 nocturnal animals: bat, cat, hamster, koala, mouse, and raccoon. 6 diurnal animals: dog, elephant, fox, panda, turtle, and zebra. I hope you and your students enjoy this sorting game!
