I created this and used it with my first grade math students in a small group. I cut out the bug pieces and laminated them, including the mat. I then would have students practice counting the bees and then asking them questions like these:
How many bees are in the hive?
How many bees are not in the hive?
How many bees are there altogether?
The different mats and critters include: bee/hive, ant/picnic blanket, ladybug/leaf, worms/jar of dirt.
There is an instruction page and the bugs could also be used for counting!
