In Subitize on Safari, students learn how to subitize by counting or immediately recognizing the number of safari animals pictured on a slide. Each slide contains from 1 to 10 safari animals in an arrangement that is common for that number (e.g., arranged like the dot patterns on dice).
There is a blank slide after each animal slide. This makes it easy for you to control how long you want your students to view each animal arrangement—you simply click to a blank slide and then give students time to answer how many animals they just saw on the previous slide. Of course PowerPoint also enables you to go back and show them the animal slide again, if you want.
There are 50 different animal arrangements in this PowerPoint product. There is one arrangement for each of the numbers from 1 to 10 for each of the five safari animals in the packet: lions, giraffes, ostriches, elephants, and zebras.
I have also included slides containing arrays of each animal for you to print. You can cut the animals apart to make a set of 10 cards of each animal for each student. (You can make the cards more durable by printing those five slides on card stock and/or laminating them.) Students can use these cards as an aid when learning how to subitize—after you show your students an animal arrangement slide and advance to a blank slide, they are to arrange their cards, from memory, in the same way that the animals were arranged on the slide. They can then work from their cards to figure out how many animals were on the slide.
