Product Description
This Ways to Make 1-5 Math Discovery Bottles Activity is meant to be used as a math center or a math by yourself activity.

This activity aligns with 2 CCSS:
K.OA.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
K.OA.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5.

I created this activity because my students love hands on activities and they need practice with composing and decomposing numbers! This activity is great for mid-end of year Kindergarten and beginning of the year first grade.

Print the equations out on cardstock and put into clear plastic bottles. I have included addition and subtraction equations (examples: 3+1, 3+1+1, 6-3). Fill the bottles with a fun filler (sand, rice, beans, confetti, beads, glitter, pom poms, etc.) Students will then shake the bottle to find different ways to make 1-5. What a fun way to learn!

You will have to provide the bottles and the bottle fillers on your own.

This download includes:
*3 different types of equations for the discovery bottles so that you can choose the difficulty level based on your class (addition equations with 2 and 3 addends, and subtraction equations)
*A fun recording sheet for students to fill out available in both color and black and white.
*Directions on how to set it all up!

Happy Teaching!
Mandy L.
