Until a couple of years ago, we had a massive oak tree in our front yard.
And I mean – massive.
Every year, the yard would be covered with fallen oak leaves and acorns.
Walking through the yard, the kids would always pick up the acorns and play with them.
We noticed that acorns look the same from far away. But when you examine them up close, you can see differences in them – colors, shapes, weight, and sizes.
So I thought acorns would make another excellent theme for visual discrimination in these acorn same or different worksheets!
This same or different activity is an excellent resource for early fall centers! Or you could use them as a one-time lesson with no prep at all.
Read on to see how to get your set.
