Animal Habitat Sort




 As part of our farm unit I wanted to do a sort of animals by where they lived.  I thought it would be something both my 2 year old and 4 year old would be able to complete on a different level.  They had a lot of fun  with our animal habitat sort and it was an easy set up activity for me.

To set it up I grabbed two buckets and the On The Farm, Not on the Farm signs (you can find those HERE) and stuck the signs on the buckets.  Then I went through our animals and grabbed a bunch and dumped them in a pile in the middle.  My girls love these Toob Farm Animals.  We have several different sets but some of the sets I included in this activity are Arctic Animals, Pets, and Jungle Friends.

 I divided the pile so each girl had a group to work with and sort.  They took turns picking an animal and deciding if it lives on a farm or lives somewhere else.  This was so easy for my 4 year old.  She sorted her pile quickly and correctly.  My 2 year old struggled with it a little bit but could easily identify farm animals when she picked one up.

After they sorted the animals, I had my 4 year old work on the paper sort that comes from my Farm Preschool Unit.  This would be a great followup activity or could replace the sorting activity if you didn't have toy animals to sort.
