This activity is like a Word Sort in reverse. In a Word Sort, students must sort designated vocabulary words into
categories. In this activity, we give students the categories and they must find words that fit.
1. For homework, students must research and find words/items that fit into the designated categories. Students may find as many examples as they like, or you
can designate a minimum number. They should write each example on a card, such
as index cards that are cut in half, and can include pictures.
2. The next day, divide the class into small groups. Have each group sort all their words into the categories. The winning group will have the most words.
