A Hand Full

In math, we did an activity where the students paired up and shared ten cubes in a brown bag. They drew their hand on a sheet of paper, and recorded how many they took out in the middle of their hand, then they compared between each other and stated who had more and less.

An extension for this activity could be where there are a total of ten cubes in the bag. Each partner takes a turn (with all ten cubes in the bag). One student grabs a handful out, counts, and records. They then have to see how many more it would take to make ten with out counting the remainder in the bag. This would be a great activity to practice the different ways to build "10" at home!
