The five senses. A simple activity to match words with pictures describing the five senses. The layout will change every time the activity is run. A quiz is included. Younger children who cannot yet read or write, will benefit from doing this as a listening comprehension activity; you can read the quiz questions and answers. Help them select the quiz answer they think is correct.
Wants v Needs (1). This matching activity is a preliminary exercise for the Wants versus Needs matching activity. This is to familiarize children with the words used to describe the wants and needs images. The layout will change every time the activity is run.
Wants v Needs (2). Now children are familiar with the words, they can match them to the pictures on the wants or needs cards. Then they decide if the card is a want or a need and drag into the appropriate column. The layout will change every time the activity is run. There is no scoring associated with this activity. When all cards have been moved, children need to manually close the activity.
Needs versus wants. This is a sorting activity which follows the two Wants v Needs matching activities. Students drop images into the relevant needs or wants boxes.
Ball games. Sorting and categorizing objects is an essential skill for both math and reading, which helps children master "same" and "different" and then practice more complex applications of the skill, such as grouping like items. In this activity children sort sports that are played with a ball from those that are played without a ball.
