Wondering what to do with the tops of plastic milk bottles?
Make a set of Bottle Top Bugs.
Look at your bugs.
Count the spots and put the bugs in order.
Try to say how many spots there are without counting in ones. Start to recognise patterns.
Find the Bug
Find the bug with 5 spots. Now find the one with one more than 5, one less than 5, two more/less than 5.
Find two bugs that have 8 spots altogether. Can you find another two with 8 spots? How many different pairs can you find? How do you know you have found them all?
