Bell Work

Sorting Animals

You will need to cut out many pictures of different kinds of animals for this activity. You may get these from magazines or use clip art. Put a pile of pictures at each table and have the students work in a group to sort the animals into categories. You may want to let them simply sort them without any direction; on the other hand, you can tell them categories into which they need to be sorted (i.e. mammal, reptile, etc.).
