Learning to classify things is important. It’s a skill that kid’s don’t always have. It involves estimation (sometimes classifying on weight based on picture, or what they see and not actual numbers), reasoning (which things belong with which), and knowledge of concepts (small/big, colors, numbers, or specific knowledge about specific things – like which objects have wheels).

I’ve found a number of fun worksheets based on classification. They require the kids to cut out the objects, and then glue them into the correct classification activity. I love worksheets that are active like this – the kids love them too. Here’s a link to a few of them. If you need more, you can search for “classification worksheets.”
