Sorting Objects by Size, Color, or
Shape

In this video, we will learn how to
sort real-life objects into categories based on size, color, or shape.

Here, we have some bears. How could we sort them? Could we sort them by size? Some of the bears are big. Some of the bears are small. And some of the bears are
medium-sized. So, we could sort the bears
according to size. We could sort the bears into three
groups. We could make a group of small
bears, a group of medium-sized bears, and a group of big bears. Let’s sort the bears by size. We sorted the bears by size. We have a group of small bears,
medium-sized bears, and a group of big bears.

We could also sort the bears by
color. This time we have a group of orange
bears, a group of pink bears, and a group of green bears. Sometimes we can sort the same
group of objects in different ways. We sorted the bears by size and
then by color.

Here, we have a group of
buttons. Could we sort the buttons by
size? We could, but there’d only be one
group because all the buttons are the same size. Could we sort the buttons by
color? Again, we could, but there’d only
be one group because all the buttons are the same color. Could we sort the buttons by
shape? Some of the buttons are
circles. And some are squares. We could sort the buttons into two
groups, a group of circles and a group of squares.

We could sort the buttons into two
groups, a group of circles and a group of squares. The first button is a circle, so we
should place it in the group of circles. We can place all of the buttons
which are circles into this group. And we can sort all of the buttons
which are squares into this group. We’ve sorted the buttons by
shape. We can sort objects in different
ways by size, color, or shape. Let’s practice sorting some
real-life objects.

We can sort these objects into
groups. Which category have the objects
been sorted by? Color, size, or shape?

We’re shown three groups of
objects. Each group contains a dice, a tree,
and a bird. We have to decide how the objects
have been sorted. Have they been sorted by color? The objects in this group are not
the same color. The objects in the other two groups
are not the same color either. Have the objects being sorted by
size? The objects in the first group are
bigger than the objects in the third group. All of the objects in the first
group are big. And in the third group, they’re all
small. And the objects in the second group
are all medium-sized.

We have a big dice, a big tree, and
a big bird in the first group. The dice, the tree, and the bird in
the second group are all medium-sized. And the dice, tree, and bird in the
third group are all small. These objects have been sorted by
size. The category the objects have been
sorted by is size.

A fruit seller sorted the following
fruits by color. Which sorting is correct?

The fruits have been sorted twice,
but which is correct? Let’s look at the first
picture. The fruits have been sorted into
rows. In the first row, all of the fruits
are red. In the second row, the fruits are
not all the same color. There are some yellow fruits, like
the lemon and the banana, and a green fruit, the apple. Doesn’t seem that these fruits have
been sorted correctly. The fruits in the third row have
also been mixed up. There are some green and some
yellow fruits. We have a green kiwi, a green
mango, and a yellow pear.

Let’s see if the fruits have been
sorted correctly in the second picture. In the first row, all of the fruits
are red. In the second row, all of the
fruits are yellow. And in the third row, all of the
fruits are green. So, the fruits have been sorted
correctly in the second picture. The fruit was sorted by color.

Jacob has a group of hats. He decides to sort them by
shape. Which sorting is correct?

This picture shows Jacob’s group of
hats. And we know that Jacob wanted to
sort them by shape. Some of Jacob’s hats are top
hats. The top part of these hats is quite
tall. Some of Jacob’s hats have a wide
brim. Some of Jacob’s hats have a wide
brim and a dome-shaped hat. And some of Jacob’s hats are
caps. Jacob has tried to sort his hats
three times. Each picture shows one of Jacob’s
attempts to sort his hats. Did he get it right? In which of the three pictures has
Jacob sorted the hats correctly?

In the first picture, the hats in
the first column are all different shapes. There’s a top hat, a wide-brimmed
hat, and a cap. The hats in the second column, or
group two, have also not been sorted correctly by shape. We have a top hat and two
wide-brimmed hats. The hats in group three, or column
three, are also different shapes. There’s a top hat and two caps. So, the sorting isn’t correct in
the first picture.

Let’s look at the second
picture. In the first group, or the first
column, all of the hats are the same shape. They’re all top hats. All of the hats in group two are
wide-brimmed hats, and they’re all shaped the same. And the hats in group three are all
caps. The hats in the second picture have
all been correctly sorted by shape. The sorting is correct in the
second picture.

What have we learned in this
video? We learned that we can sort objects
using categories such as size, color, or shape. And we can sort the same group of
objects using more than one category.
