Activity Suggestion: Help children discover the variety of ways to classify things. Assign each student the task of bringing in three different animal pictures to share with the class. Arranging the children in small groups, have them pool their pictures. Challenge the children to group the animals so someone else can look at the group and know what they have in common. After this is completed, have class members guess what rule the group used to classify their pictures.
