Super Collectibles and Super Sorts

Second graders listen to a read aloud of Byrd Baylor's, "Everybody Needs a Rock." They bring in rocks that meet the indicated criteria in order to build a classroom rock collection. After enough rocks have been collected, they complete a super sort activity in which they categorize and sort the students' shoes. Next, they sort the rocks onto Venn Diagrams using attribute cards.

As a first year teacher Lesson Planet was an incrediable help. I could see what other teachers had done to give me ideas. The time guidelines, materials needed and resource information gave me guidance in structuring my own plans. Many of the plans are well laid out and were very usable, which was a great time saver.
