1. Click on the button. 2. Using a tool, make a line from the dinosaur on the left, to it's match on the right. 3. Do the same thing on page 2. Hint: There is more than one correct way to match on this page; color or type/shape. 4. Tell a grown up how you matched the second page of dinosaurs; color or type/shape. 5. Click on the to save your work to your journal. Simplify: * Let your child match the dinosaurs on the second page, but don't require them to tell you how they matched them. * Only do the first page, where your child can match dinosaurs that are exact matches. * Help your child match the dinosaurs on the first page, by doing it with them, hand-over-hand. To help expose them to the concept, say something like, "Look, they match" or "They're the same" as you match each set. If they're ready to learn the concept, you can tell them why they're the same too. Example: "Look, they're both yellow" or "Hey, T-Rex and T-Rex!" etc. Extend: * On the second page, have your child make matches both ways, by color and type. * See if your child can figure out two ways to match the dinosaurs on page two without telling them how. * See if your child can find any other ways to sort/classify the dinosaurs. (Examples, standing on two feet or four, long necks or short necks, spikes or smooth backs, etc.) Learning Potentials (Core Standards): Sort objects into given categories including color, size, shape, etc. Classify/sort objects into given categories (for example, color, size, shape) by specified attributes. Plan and carry out an investigation to classify different kinds of materials based on patterns in their observable properties, (Pre-requisite: Recognition of alike/the same/matching). Examples could include sorting materials based on similar properties such as color, hardness, texture, or whether the materials are solids or liquids.
