Attribute Blocks

This interactive Java applet gives students practice in sorting attribute blocks by color, shape, or size. In each problem students are presented with a set of objects that share a common attribute, and they must identify objects from another set that have the same attribute. Students can check their solution, and have another try or request a new problem. Teacher information about the blocks and their classroom implementation is included.

    • This is a good resource to use with young students just learning about the attributes. A good use of technology that is simple enough for students to manipulate while learning.
