This easy-to-use pack contains sorting activities for material types and properties of materials that will create an engaging Science activity for your Kindergarten, First Grade or Second Grade students.


Use the sorting sheets to discuss classifying objects based on their properties/object type or the Property Flowers to fold down a petal for each property that the object doesn't have. These activities make great formative or summative assessment items.




What teachers say about this pack:

" This was a wonderful resource when we were studying properties. I loved the little flower shape to glue in our Science journal when practising how to observe properties. I also loved how students can then pick and explore an object on their own and fill out a blank one." 

"I love how visual and simple it is. When teaching children with special needs it's important to be able to teach the topic but modified it for them to understand it. So I love the activities it offers. Perfect for our Science Fair coming up."
