What's in the Bag? A Classification Game
The cat’s out of the bag! Or is it the book? Or the shoe? You'll have to play this guessing game to find out!
One of the key things kids learn in preschool is how to categorize and sort a set of objects—figuring out what makes them the same and what makes them different. Comparing things to one another is one of the baby steps towards critical thinking and problem solving.
There are lots of things you can do at home that will help foster these same analyzing skills. But one of the most fun requires nothing more than a set of objects from around your house, and a simple pillowcase or brown paper grocery bag.
What You Need:
- A paper bag
- An assortment of familiar household items: silverware, keys, pens, etc.
