Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This is a way to get students involved in household chores in a FUN way! Students will have the opportunity to use their sorting skills to sort socks in a way that makes sense to them (maybe by colour, size, family member). They will also learn to make matches from their sorted piles. Optional extension: students are invited to tally or write down how many pairs of socks they were able to match.
