- Three sorting mats (cardstock)
- Three size rulers (cardstock)
- Various pieces of string and ribbon for measuring and sorting
How to make:
Choose three different sized animals from clipart and print them on the corner of the sorting mats and create 3 rulers. Cut various pieces of string and ribbon into the lengths of the animal rulers.
Show your child how to measure each item. Once he/she determines how long it is (as long as the shark, dog or caterpillar), he/she then should set the piece on the corresponding mat. He/she then should set the piece on the corresponding mat. He/she should continue measuring and sorting until all the pieces are on the mats.
