Classification Exericses for the Holiday Season

Classification allows us to better understand relationships and connections between things.  


Challenge your students' minds with fun Higher Order Thinking Skills Classification Exercises. Students will classify a group of items according to their general category, consider which one of the items is different from the others in some subtle way, remove it, and then determine the specific category that remains.

The student will learn:

to classify items belonging to a general category and having the characteristics of that category;

to determine which item in the general group is different from the others and remove it;

to reclassify the items that remain into a specific category;

to work cooperatively in small groups.




Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers  


General Category: Football Teams

Item to Remove: Minnesota Vikings

Specific Category: Football teams that have won Super Bowls.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. Be sure to read the interesting blog posts below from my teacher friends in The Best of Teacher Entrepreneurs.
