- Have the child place them next to each other (to see the contrast) and in isolation from the other tablets.
- Separate them but still keep them isolated from the others.
- Point to the darkest tablet (should be on the left) and tell the child that you are looking for one that is just a little different.
- Place the correct tablet directly to the right of the darkest shade.
- Point to this new tablet and ask the child, " Can you find the one that is just a little different than this one?"
- Continue until you and the child have successfully arranged the shades in decreasing order.
- Have the child close his eyes and you mix up the tablets.
- Have the child arrange the shades in order as shown.
