Ordering By Size

I saw this activity for purchase on a website, but it looked easy enough to make on my own.  I made 6 different weather shapes in 4 different sizes for an ordering by size activity.

The cards

This activity can be carried out in two ways.  The first that I’m starting with is to put each shape in order from smallest to largest. For younger children, use only 3 sizes and add the fourth after they have no problems with ordering 3.

Order by size

After ordering has been mastered, these cards can also be sorted by size in 4 groups – all the large shapes together, all the smallest shapes together, etc.  I love it when materials do double duty!

Enjoy and thank you for your comments!
