Have fun illustrating division with the story The Doorbell Rang, by Pat Hutchins. Your students will use Cookie Crisps (or another cereal) as a manipulative with The Doorbell Rang Activity Book. They will practice dividing 12 cookies between 2, 4, 6, and 12 different people and then illustrate their results. Also included are two additional small group activities using the book The Doorbell Rang. Use this as a small group activity or a whole group activity.
