A great way to practice several Common Core Standards in one activity! Students use a cup full of two-sided counters to shake, spill, and count the counters. Then, they determine which color has the GREATER or FEWER amount.
K.CC.B4: Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.B5: Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
K.CC.C6: Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.
K.CC.C7: Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numerals.
Can be used for assessment, math centers, guided math, or whole group!
