One is a snail, Ten is a crab (Addition)
April and Jeff Sayre's delightful children's book 'One is a snail, Ten is a crab' offers an opportunity for students to develop their number sense and problem solving skills. After reading the book, students search for different ways of representing numbers as animal feet. Students use drawings to show their solutions and try to come up with as many different solutions ad possible. This activity is open ended and therefore caters for all abilities within the classroom.
