Big and Small Sorting

Big and Small Sorting


Cut and stick pictures of big and small versions of the same pictures onto sorting boards labelled 'big' and 'small'.


Why do you need this?

Teachers might use activities where children cut and stick pictures of big and small versions onto sorting boards to help students understand the concept of size and develop their fine motor skills. This hands-on activity engages students in visual discrimination as they compare and contrast the sizes of different objects. It also reinforces vocabulary related to size and encourages critical thinking as students categorise the pictures based on their size. Overall, this activity promotes both cognitive and motor skill development in a fun and interactive way.


How and when might you use this?

Teachers might use this activity during early childhood or reception education or with older children with special educational needs to introduce or reinforce the concept of size comparison. Can be used in group or independent practice or independent workstations.


Can be used as a one off activity or for continued use you may want to laminate the boards and pictures and use Velcro to move the pictures around.


What is included?

Included are 2 boards, one labelled ‘big’ and one labelled ‘small’ and 14 pictures to cut and stick onto the appropriate board.
