Key Facts & Information
CLASSIFYING/SORTING OBJECTS ACCORDING TO COLORS
- One way to classifying objects is by their colors.
CLASSIFYING/SORTING OBJECTS ACCORDING TO SIZES
- Another way is to classify objects according to size.
- Aside from classifying objects according to their colors or sizes, there are more ways to classify objects. For example, you can classify the children in a room according to their eye colors or even according to their hair colors.
- You can classify objects according to their lengths, whether short or long. For higher classification methods, you can classify objects according to the number of sides the object has.
- There are two ways to sort numbers, either increasing or decreasing.
- Increasing means that the numbers are getting larger.
- Decreasing means that the numbers are getting smaller.
- With prior knowledge about comparing numbers, ask the students to sort the numbers 1 to 5 as a refresher.
CLASSIFYING OBJECTS AND SORTING ACCORDING TO COUNT
- After classifying the objects according to their respective characteristics or attributes, count the objects to know the total count per classification group.
- With prior knowledge about comparing numbers, ask the student to sort the objects by type of fruit.
- The two categories are (1) banana and (2) apple.
- After classifying the objects as either banana or apple, count the pieces of bananas under the banana category and then count the pieces of apple under the apple category.
- Identify the count of each category.
- Use the idea of sorting numbers to sort each category.
- Arrange the two boxes in increasing order.
- Using the same idea as sorting numbers, you can also sort multiple categories according to their count.
