This packet includes 2 pages of a picture word sort for plants vs animals. I have used this for both my higher and lower students with autism and even included these samples for their alternate assessment portfolios. It includes one page of real animal/plant pictures and one uses picture symbols.
This also meets the 8th grade standard: "Classify organisms into the currently recognized kingdoms according to characteristics that they share. Be familiar with organisms from each kingdom."
Outside of traditional grade level standards, this can be used for students of any age.
