This cross-curricular activity helps the child learn the function of adjectives in a series and allows the child to act as a detective as they use the descriptive power of adjectives to identify specific triangles from a larger group.

Two printing options are available. The first includes colored triangles ready to be printed using a colored printer. The second option features black and white outlines of the triangles that can be printed directly onto colored cardstock.

If using these in a larger classroom setting, I recommend printing the materials on cardstock and laminating them for extended use. I also recommend creating or finding a storage system and separating the pieces into their categories (triangles, color-coded parts of speech cards, and command cards) for easy access.
