These activity sheets will give your kindergarten students practice in comparing groups of simple pictures.

#### How to Compare Groups of Objects? There are numerous objects in the world. Some might look the same but if you take a look at them closely, you will realize that they are not as similar as they may seem from a distance. Students when learning about mathematics will find themselves many times at a stage where they'd have to compare two or more groups of objects. They will be required to do a direct comparison. But how do you compare two or more groups of objects in mathematics? Follow the below-mentioned steps to compare two groups of objects. Bring the objects together physically and analyze them carefully. Identify each one's height, volume, weight, etc. Compare two objects on the basis of the attributes or traits they have such as; more or less length, distance, height, capacity, and depth. For example; you can compare the heights of two children, the distance of two destinations or the depth of swimming pools. This way students will have an idea about different shapes existing in the world and will develop an understanding about the shapes having different heights, lengths and volumes.

These are comparison worksheets and they start us off learning how to sort items. We look at groups of individual images and compare their size to other groups. You will be tasked with determining the larger and smaller groups. We then advance into sorting items in the groups based on a similar feature. Students should have a basic understanding of shapes in order to use the sorting worksheets. Your students will use these worksheets to practice comparing groups of items through counting, and grouping items based on common characteristics.

## Sorting Lesson

Starting from the first shape, it is a circle. The next shape is a square. The next shape is a star. The next shape is a circle again. The next shape is a triangle. The next shape is a square. The next shape is a circle again.

## Lesson and Practice

Underline all the objects that are blue in color and circular in shape. Starting from the first object, it is a dress and blue in, but not circular in shape. The second object is a frog. It is not circular and also not blue in color. The third object is a fish. It is blue in color, but not circular in shape. The fourth object is a clock. It is circular as well as blue in color. The fifth object is a vase. It is not circular and also not blue in color. The sixth object is a ring. It is circular as well as blue in color. So, we underline the fourth and sixth object, i.e. clock and ring.
