Students can complete this activity independently or in pairs. Students are to roll a die or 2 dice and place the corresponding number of shapes in the shape cards. Students should complete one shape card at a time.
Cards with 2 shapes allow students to explore the variety of ways to make a sum using part + part = whole, or by corresponding the dice number with each shape
(ex: If a student rolls a 6 and a 4, the student could put down 6 triangles and 4 squares on the triangle and square card)
Basic shapes are based off of manipulatives and include:
-one blank one to fill in if needed
-a variety of pages with 2 of the shapes listed above on one card
*Cut each page apart so students have half a page to represent 1 card.
