How to use this resource


As this activity covers both addition & subtraction it can be used to introduce both concepts. Since this activity is very hands on it is perfect for helping your students visualise adding and subtracting objects. 

Since your students will need to read the word problems to understand what they need to do some adult support is required to complete this activity. 

Each worksheet can either be laminated or placed into dry erase pockets before use. Your students can then manipulate the pictures to help them solve the addition & subtraction problems without sticking the images down. This means this resource can be used over and over again saving you time and money!
