We have read the book One is a Snail Ten is a Crab. In this book we saw that different combinations of people feet and animal feet could represent the same number. If you would like to share the book with your child, check out the video. Lily and Casia did a super job sharing the story.
Your job is to tell 3 ways you can make 30 using the characters in the book. Remember how we did it in class with the different numbers?
Remember: 1 is a snail, 2 is a person, 4 is a dog, 6 is an insect, 8 is a spider, 10 is a crab.
You may want to use scrap paper at home to draw out your answer. Drawing and counting the legs will be very helpful.
Here is an example of one possible answer (no, you cannot use this one as your answer): I drew 15 people and found out that 30 is 15 people.
COMMENT BOX ASSIGNMENT: Figure out THREE other ways to make 30 and write about each one in the box. Remember to put your name.
