PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity is very simple, yet sends a powerful message about dividing items equally. I just use the mat for a hands on activity, but I also included one that older students can record the answer. You can give each student a handful of swedish fish, goldfish crackers or marshmallws to represent the fish. It is their job to give equal shares to each penguin at the end of the day and decide what happens if there happens to be a "remainder".

When we print it out, is the second "fish" word actually "penguin" in the question, "How many fish did each fish get?" Simple, basically no-prep activity to easily teach dividing equally.

I love this! I can't wait to see how they handle a remainder:) However it still says fish instead of penguin in the 2nd question.

What a cute idea! I noticed the second question says, "How many fish did each fish get?" I am wondering if you meant to type, "How many fish did each penguin get?"? If it is possible, could you change the sheet to say "penguin" instead of fish for the second sentence? Thanks.
