I created this as a fun way to introduce division to your students! We introduce division along with our Fairy Tale Unit in Reading (Goldilocks and the Three Bears)...hence the reason for the bears! For manipulatives, we use honey graham bears (sold at your local grocery store). I pass out a handful to each student. As a class, we review the concepts together creating groups and then placing the correct number of bears in the specified groups. Students will write the matching division sentence and then sketch the pictorial representation of the equation. When done, the students love to finish with a sweet treat!
