There are 10 different mats and 40 different item cards to sort. There are two sets of the item cards- black outlined cards and color coded cards.
The categories are:
- farm animals
- zoo animals
- playground equipment
Here is an example of two mats and the color coded cards that go with them:
I made two sets of item cards. There is a color coded set like you see above. The outline of each card matches the mat. I also made a set that has black outlines, so that the students do not match the color and have to really focus on the category. I thought that the color coded set would help my students with ASD to work on this activity, and then I plan on fading out to the black outline cards as they learn the activity.
