Addition and Subtraction Stories
This collection of activities puts addition and subtraction in context, providing props for little maths stories. They are great for pupil participation, either through a child telling the story, or acting as props themselves, in an active learning situation.
The first activity, Counting Fish, provides a very flexible tool for estimating, counting and comparing, as well as storytelling. The shark performs "take away"!
Subsequent tools, from the smaller thumbnails, provide either different props or a more structured animated story.
