Beetles are a type of insect characterized by front wings that serve as protective covers for their membranous hind wings.
These protective sheaths are often brightly colored, making them a fun subject for preschool counting! At our school, we are always engaging in play-based math activities.
This includes counting, sorting, measuring, and having fun!
We try to use an many three-dimensional items as possible so that our activities are as concrete as possible.
For this activity, students counted a variety of beetles of different quantities.
Following this, they sorted their bugs according to number.
