###### SORTING A LARGER GROUP OF TWO WITH ONE ATTRIBUTE

In this lesson, you introduce the kids to a large group of two items that differ in only one key attribute.

You can start the lesson by defining the key attribute for the kids before moving to the stage of allowing them decipher the attribute themselves.

For example: using size as the attribute, you give the kids a group of two objects that have the same shapes, the same colour but different sizes and ask the kids to sort the object according to size.

When you display the objects for the kids, give time to sort the items. Create opportunity for them to verbalize their actions by explaining their classification method.

For instance, in the example above, as the children are sorting, they should——– this is big, stay here, this is

small, stay here. This verbalization will keep them on track so as not to forget their deciding attribute. I will use the Prompting question approach.

We can sort things base on their shapes , sizes and colours .

We sort out small ball from the big ball

We can also sort out blue balls from the green balls
