I created this printable to accompany Investigations Topic 6, sessions 1.1, 1.3, 1.6 and 1.7. Even if you do not teach Investigations, the activity is a great way to help students decompose numbers 5-10 into smaller numbers. Students practice creating designs using color tiles. Find where tiles seem to be in groups and use those amounts to create equations. Great way to see various combinations of the same number. Use the blank printable grid to create your own arrangements and finish off with a cover.
