Starter: Choose an activity from Bud's Number Garden:
How many more strawberries are there than oranges?
Today you will need:
A variety of different objects or toys
Multilink cubes or counters.
Get together a variety of different objects. These could be toys, different objects from around the house or your multilink cubes and counters. Put them all in one big pile. Ideally, you want to choose 3 different items and have up to 10 of each. Today you are introducing more than two types to compare.
Which set of objects have the most? Which set of objects have the least? How many more cars are there? (Base your questions around the objects you have used). Which colour of cubes do you have the fewest of?
