Remember all those fiddly buttons and how good we all were at doing them up? Well, we have a huge tub full of BIG colourful buttons to investigate today. We have red ones and purple ones, green ones and orange ones. We have star-shaped ones and flower-shaped ones, triangular ones and ovals.
So grab a handful of colourful buttons; go on – a nice BIG handful. Grab a friend too – you will be working with a partner. Take a bit of time to look at the buttons. Your job is to sort them out. You can sort them any way you like. I wonder; how many different ways can you find?
Maybe you can sort them by colour.
Maybe you can sort them by shape.
Maybe you can do some counting to find other ways of sorting them. Have you noticed the holes?
