# Find 2 Objects that Share a Trait - Lesson for Kindergarten, Chapter - Matching and Sorting

In the lesson "Find 2 Objects that Share a Trait," kindergarten students embark on an engaging journey into the foundational concepts of early logic and geometry. This lesson is nestled within the Matching and Sorting chapter of the Early Logic and Geometry unit, providing young learners with a structured pathway to understanding how objects relate to each other through shared characteristics.

Throughout this lesson, students will learn to identify and articulate common traits among various objects. Activities such as the Color Match Up Worksheet and Classifying Fruits and Veggies by Color Sorting Worksheet will enhance their ability to recognize colors as a unifying attribute. This skill is further reinforced with the Preschool Geometry Sorting Worksheet, where students will categorize shapes, fostering an early appreciation for geometry.

Understanding how to find objects that share a trait is crucial for developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. These activities lay a strong foundation for categorization—a skill that is not only pivotal in mathematics but also in everyday decision-making and organization.

The best way to use worksheets is to let them start a conversation about what is being practiced. Extend your child’s learning by starting a conversation about color, and how items can be very different, but also the same in some characteristics, like color.

• ### Activity 4 / Preschool Geometry Sorting Worksheet

One vitally important preschool skill is learning shapes. Once kids learn their shapes, they also need to see how shapes are used in everyday objects and images. Sorting shapes worksheets will help children to identify shapes in the world around them.
Through this worksheet, your child will:
• Sort through images to locate triangles;
• Rule out pictures that aren’t triangles.
Through this simple task, your child will actually sort through challenging images, such as crescents. Talk to your child how some objects, like Christmas trees, look similar to triangles in shape, although are slightly different. Use this worksheet to talk to your child about shapes, and help them recognize shapes around them.
