Cookie jar – sharing activity


Posted by lisar | Posted in Division | Posted on September 18, 2015


Materials: Coloured pencils, plain paper and counters.

Task details: This activity can also be linked to the text ‘When the doorbell rang’. Students will draw a cookie jar in the middle of their page and place cookies (counters) within the drawn jar. Students will then draw a picture of themselves and a friend. They will then share out the cookies evenly by moving the counters one at a time. Once the cookies have been shared out they will draw and write the amount of cookies each person gets.

Skills: Counting, sharing and grouping.

Extension: Have more people to share the cookies between such as, the member of the students’ family.

Include different coloured counters (different flavoured cookies) which will need to be grouped before being shared.
