Here are some of my recommendations on the different ways you can use these cards.

Print on card stock and laminate for longer use. After cutting cards, draw with marker or stick dot stickers to the back of each set – one color for each set. Place the label cards in a row. Explain the difference between objects created by nature and objects made by people. Invite the child to sort cards into two categories.

After the child completed the task, invite him or her to flip the cards and self-check. Each card has to be under the correct category based on the dot color.

Young children can be encouraged to match nature when printed twice. Or draw and color things that are made in nature and by humans using their choice of art medium.

Older children might be inspired to research and create their own books on the topic.
