Dividing into Equal Groups helps students learn what division is all about (without the messy numbers). You get 18 lessons with bugs to cut out and manipulate into equal groups, a set of 18 flashcards to practice for the assessment, 3 quizzes to assess student learning, and 27 extra pages of math and ELA.
Students divide a group of honeybees or grasshoppers or spiders into equal groups by cutting them apart and sorting them into groups. These 18 activities will help students connect the multiplication and division facts they must memorize to real life. Students just learning about these concepts will enjoy this activity (it is hands-on and very buggish).
