Categorization is an essential skill for children to develop. This product uses a variety of modes of transportation to sort based on where they go (air, land, or water), if they use motors or people power and whether or not the vehicles have wheels or not. These are great for independent work in the classroom or during speech therapy centres.
1. Choose which file folder to use.
2. Spread out the cards and have the student pick a card and put it in the correct group. For example, if you are sorting by if they have wheels, the canoe would go with the no wheel side. The motorbike would go on the wheel side.
3. These should be used in conjunction with other vehicle sorting activity. These other activities can include: using toy vehicles and sensory bins/felt placemats to sort by features, making a craft with different vehicles being placed where they go.
These activities could also be used to describe the vehicles, work on understanding or using “not,” understanding functions (e.g., find something that makes a hole), following directions (e.g., pick up the parachute and then the ship).

1. Air, Land, and Water Sort (Sort 20 different vehicles)
2. Engine v. People Power Sort (Sort 16 different vehicles)
3. Wheels v. No Wheels Sort (Sort 16 different vehicles)
