4. Sort the Hearts by Color: Students will drag and drop the hearts in the middle of the slide into one of the bigger hearts at the bottom of the slide that has the same color. If the student is correct, the heart will disappear into the bigger heart. If the student is wrong, the heart will either fly back out or just stop. The student will need to try again until he chooses the heart with the same color. You could practice saying the colors at the same time.
