Snap Apart 5

Unit 12: What Makes 5?
Lesson 4 of 4

Objective: SWBAT find combinations that make 5 by breaking apart 5 towers and naming the parts.

Big Idea: Kindergartners need a concrete understanding of what it means to decompose and compose numbers to 10. Combinations for 2, 3 and 4 are easy for them, but 5 and above is struggle every year. This activity makes it fun to learn.
