This animated PowerPoint is a series of nature based number stories. (15 slides, 14 number stories) There is a script in the presentation which asks all the questions and indicates when to click to make the minibeasts appear or disappear. This is also a great way to introduce common animals and bring nature alive.
Creatures/items included: beetles, earthworms, ladybirds, spider, bees, grasshoppers, butterflies, ants, pinecones, caterpillar eggs, earwigs, snails and woodlice (pill bugs) .
Extract from script:
Oh look what we’ve found, crawling around! Two beautiful, black beetles.
If one more came to join them, how many would there be?
(Wait for students to answer)
