# Insertion sort

In this lesson, learners will explore another sorting algorithm: insertion sort. Some exam boards do not require learners to know insertion sort, so do check the specification first. Learners will start by discussing how they would sort objects in real life, which may lead them to describe something akin to an insertion sort.
