Digit Dog and Calculating Cat are trying one of the Numicon Ideas for Spring resources that they found on www.oxfordowl.co.uk
How can Calculating Cat share the chicks between the 3 nests? Try it.
How many chicks will be in each nest? Convince your friend that you are right.
Write a dividing calculation to go with your representation.
Try different numbers of nests – can you share the 12 chicks equally between 2 nests? What about 4 nests, 5 nests, 6 nests? What do you notice?
Try a different number of chicks. What happens?
