Land or Water Activity

How to teach Environments

Using this Land or Water Activity, students play this sorting game to learn which animals live on land and which live in water.

Understanding where you find specific objects builds your students vocabulary of land and water. This worksheet gives your students practice with sorting land and water terms.

Place the land and water sorting mat in front of all of the players. Players shuffle the cards and deal the same amount to each player. Take turns spinning the spinner to land on land, water, spin 2 times, or lose a turn. If a student lands on land or water, they must find a matching animal in their deck and place on the sorting mat. If they do not have a match, their turn is skipped. The first player to get rid of all of their cards wins!
