I was picking tomatoes in my garden one day for a 3 Act task on doubles when I almost picked up a caterpillar by mistake! I started exploring my plants and found MANY caterpillars roaming around. In fact, they were everywhere! I wasn’t sure why I was taking pictures, but I felt the need to.
I decided this afternoon that it would be a great lesson on counting on, subtraction or finding the missing addend. And so, The Very Hungry Caterpillars was born! This task addresses standard 1.NBT.C.4 in 1st grade.
I wasn’t sure how to set up Act 1, but after some thought, I think it works! As always, I would love feedback.
Here is the link to the Nearpod Version.
How many caterpillars were black?
