Use these sheets at a center as part of a literacy lesson or as part of a science lesson.
These sheets can be enlarged at a local printing company or through your local education agency and used as anchor charts and teaching tools. Additionally, use the charts on a classroom SmartBoard, Elmo, or other classroom projection system.
Print the first page on heavy paper (cardstock, tagboard) and laminate it. Attach hook-and-loop tape to the category boxes.

Now you have a game or permanent sorting sheet for a center or for students of varying needs.
