This large or small group activity encourages students to observe carefully, analyze, and make comparisons and predictions based on data they gather. Students will sort shoes by different attributes, such as how they fasten, color, size, and type of shoe (i.e., sneaker, boot, sandal, etc.). They will then record their findings on a chart made from a shower curtain and count the shoes in each attribute category. Students will also collaborate with their peers to answer questions about their findings.
