Practice how to quantify numbers, using this Robot-themed ten frame manipulative.
1. Stack the number cards face down, in the Number Box
2. Place the Gear Counters in the Gear Box.
3. Get a card, place it in the Robot Box.
4. Get the correct amount of gears and place in the 10 frame machine.
5. Extend the activity by using different colored gears. Use this to introduce benchmarking of numbers.
My students and I have extra fun here, especially when we work on these using robotic movements :)
