Students divide a group of fish or stars or spiders into equal groups by drawing a straight line (or two, three, four or five lines). These activities improve the Guess and Check strategy as students use wooden skewers (with ends nipped off) to dividing the objects on the page into groups. My students enjoy this activity (it is hands-on and very engaging).
