This super simple center is just perfect for beginning learners who are working on counting to 10. To use this activity, give each student a “Let’s Count Watermelon Seeds” card, seeds (you can use beans, counters, or the printable seeds included in this download), and a recording sheet. Students choose watermelon cards, count the number of seeds, match the number of seeds on their watermelon, and record them number on the recording sheet.
Included in this 21-page download are 3 different recording sheets (draw the number of seeds, trace the number of seeds, and write the number of seeds), color and black and white versions of the center, and printable watermelon seeds.
I hope that you and your students enjoy this activity!
