This activity has students sort examples into groups of physical and chemical changes. Kinesthetic learners, SPED students, and ELL students especially benefit from this sorting activity because they physically group the examples, which have both words and pictures. After students sort the pictures they record their answers on the worksheet and answer questions about physical and chemical changes in sentences. The students can work individually or in small groups to complete this activity.
