Data Analysis - Button Attributes!

Our class has started a new Math unit on Data Analysis. This was a fun activity. Students had to sort their buttons in 2 different ways with a partner.
I asked them to choose 2 attributes because most of them wanted to choose to sort by colour. When they finished sorting by colour, which was a good warm-up, they had to challenge themselves with something like texture.
We use the TERC Investigations series. This was a part of one of the lessons in unit 4. This series does not use Glyphs as part of data analysis. I'd like to make/find some good glyphs for my students!
