reSolve: Skip Counting: How Many Birds?

This lesson explores counting large groups and building skip-counting strategies. Students use their own strategies to work out how many birds are in a picture. They are then encouraged to consider efficient counting strategies and to recount the collection by grouping birds and using skip-counting strategies. The lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points, extension activities and student resources such as handouts. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry program.
