This Weather Cup Sort makes a good center activity. Students are able to use these cards to think about the different types of weather and the clothing and accessories that are appropriate for each type of weather. They are also able to see that some articles may be appropriate for more than one type of weather.
This game is a very simple sorting activity in which students take turns selecting a card, naming the article of clothing or accessory, and deciding on what type of weather it might be appropriate for. Students then take turns sorting the cards into the appropriate cups. If they find that an article is appropriate for more than one type of weather than they can discuss their reasons for thinking this way and explain their final sorting decision.
Extension: Students can use the blank cards to write the name of or draw a picture of other articles of clothing or accessories and add them to the game.
This set includes 6 labels, 3 pages of clothing and accessory cards (30 cards), and 1 blank card page.
