About This Product

This downloadable PDF is an educational activity that involves sorting non-identical animals. Why we teach sorting and grouping - Sorting and grouping are important skills for young children to learn because they lay the foundation for many other important academic and life skills. Sorting and grouping involve categorizing objects based on common attributes such as color, shape, size, and function. These skills help children to understand and make sense of the world around them.

This activity begins by presenting the learner with two large cards, one depicting a dog and the other a cat, to introduce the two animal categories. Then, the learner is given 12 smaller cards, 6 with different pictures of a dog and 6 with different pictures of a cat.

The task is to sort the smaller cards into two piles, one for dogs and the other for cats, based on the animal depicted in the picture. The learner is encouraged to observe and compare the pictures to identify the distinguishing features of each animal and group them accordingly.

As the learner progresses, the activity can be made more challenging by introducing pictures of animals that are similar such as a horse and a cow, to test their ability to differentiate between similar but unrelated objects.

This activity can be used to promote several learning outcomes-

visual discrimination

classification

critical thinking skills

It is also a fun and engaging way for learners to explore and learn about different types of animals while practicing essential cognitive skills.

This activity was created to be an activity book. However, feel free to print and create to fit your needs.

This is a ten-page book with twenty different animals to sort.

The different animals can be switched out and rearranged on the different pages to fit the individual learner.

Enjoy
