When children explore their environment they notice how things are alike, and how they are different. They begin to sort them by characteristics that have meaning to them, characteristics such as color, size, shape, texture and sound. Children then begin matching objects that have the same characteristics. It is easier for children to begin matching pictures after they have had experience matching concrete objects. As children begin to master their matching skills, they will try more complex math activities.
