Product Description

Task: Students sort picture cards onto file folder mats to group by categories. Animals or plants and foods from animals or plants are the topics.

Sorting objects and then pictures is a next step after students master matching objects and pictures. This simple categorization activity gives students practice sorting pictures into two categories of animals or plants.

There is a second activity of sorting pictures into food products from animals or food products from plants.

Both are great for early childhood and students on the autism spectrum or those with developmental language delays.

Both sets are available in color for classroom use and black and white for a cut and glue task or to take home for more practice.

This works very well as file folder activities by gluing two sorting mats to the inside of a folder. Directions for assembling the file folders are included in this PDF.


Students on the Autism Spectrum, in Early Childhood, Early Intervention, ESL, Occupational Therapy, Special Education or Speech Therapy classes; compliments structured teaching strategies.

Included in this resource are:

48 cards – 12 each of animals, plants, foods from animals, and foods from plants, in both picture cards and pictures with text labels

Labels for file folders and storage

4 sorting mats

All cards and mats are in color and blackline
