Padlet: Students create categories and group the words from the word wall to fit those categories. Set the number of words that are allowed in a miscellaneous category and create a maximum and minimum number of categories that can be used. This activity could be done individually first; then students share and compare their categories with a partner. Students share their groups of words with the class who guess the principle behind the sorting. A good activity for learning key vocabulary and concepts through classifying, predicting and ranking.
