Another activity inspired by A Remainder of One
The members of the 16th Bug Squadron have organised themselves for the Queen’s parade.
Is Calculating Cat correct? Or has she made a mistake?
What do you notice about the bugs?
What can you say about:
- the number of rows?
- the number of colums?
- the number of bugs?
- patterns in the numbers on their backs?
- diagonal patterns?
- odd ones out?
- totals of spots?
- their eyes?
Could the 16th Squadron organise themselves in a different way?
Remember each row has to have the same number of bugs in it because “the queen likes things tidy”.
The bottle top bugs are easy to make with a Sharpie pen and goggly eyes (I got mine from The Works)
