This packet is also included in my 1st Grade Thanksgiving Math Centers
This Thanksgiving themed subtraction math activity can be done whole class or as a center. The subtraction activity is meant to compliment EngageNY, Module 1, Topic G. The students have to decide if it is more efficient to count on or count back to subtract on the number path. Students will count on to subtract when the numbers are closer together, like in 9-8=. It would only be one hop from 8 to 9 on the number path, which would be less hops than counting back. Students will count back on the number path when the numbers are far apart, like 8-1=.
Included is a frog/turkey art craft to go above the recording sheet.
If you are not interest in a "count on" to subtract activity but like the idea of this center, I have another variation in my store here: Thanksgiving Themed Hop on or Hop Back to Add or Subtract
