Sort and Count II

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The purpose of this task is for students to sort the same set of objects according to different attributes and to practice counting to tell the number of objects in a set. The teacher can extend the task by asking the students which group has the most and which group has the least and if any of the groups have the same number. For students who are struggling with the concept of categorizing, the teacher can provide bags of objects which can only be sorted one way. For example, a bag could contain small counting bears that are identical except color, with only two or three colors of bears in each bag.
