A fun, hands on activity to practice ordering by 5's to go along with your Spring or Bug/Insect theme. A great tool to introduce skip counting by 5's or in math centers for practice. Can also be used to assess whether your students have mastered skip counting by 5's. I have included two versions: one in numerical order and one mixed up.
These can be used over several days (have students store theirs in a plastic bag). At the end of the activity, have students glue their bugs in order on 2 sentence strips taped together or a long strip of paper (about 4 feet).
