    Sorting and Packaging Taskboxes

    As adults, many of my students may have jobs in a factory or workshop setting. After visiting several of these facilities, I realized that it would be very important for these students to be able to sort objects and match them to a grid in order to package them.

    Here are several examples of taskboxes addressing these skills:

    Link Sort by Color: Separate the link from the chain (great fine motor task), sort by color, and "package" in correct bag

    Poker Chip Packaging: Place poker chip on matching color. Once one row is complete, package in  bag and repeat

    Plasticware Sort: Sort plasticware into bag

    These are great ideas!!! I want to have a vocational center in my classroom and couldn't think of applicable tasks.

    Lacey, you would love Tasks Galore for the Real World! I highly recommend it for any vocational tasks.
