When I was plundering through the Target Dollar Spot recently, I came across these little erasers shaped like food, and decided to use them for a food classification activity. They have sets of fruit, vegetables, and desserts. I’m going to have children use the classification mat I made, and sort them according to which foods are healthy foods and which are unhealthy foods. This activity will be in our science center.
Run right down to Target and get you some before they’re sold . Just in case you don’t, I included some printable food pictures you can cut apart for sorting on the mats. I also made a mat for classifying Fruits and Vegetables.
Note: If you want to print the mats, but not the food pictures, just hit CTRL-P and in the next box you see, select the page numbers you want to print (on Windows).
