100 Ant Picnic Math Activity GIVEAWAY!

Teaching math can be such a fun experience, especially when using manipulative and hands-on activities like the 100 Ant Picnic set from Learning Resources!  I am VERY excited about this giveaway because it is SO versatile! I am able to use this with my 4 year old and my soon to be 7 year old!

What is included?
The 100 Any Picnic Math Activity set includes:
*100 durable ant counters in two colors (yellow and blue)
*1 Double Sided, write and wipe 100 board
*Activity Guide with recommended activities

How Does it Work?
What I LOVE about this activity set is that there is NO right or wrong way to play with it!  There are so many different possibilities that will help kids learn number sense, skip counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and more!  I can tell right now that this will be a HUGE part of our learning time during school as well as some FUN summer learning!

Here are a few of the games that we played with the 100 Ant Picnic set, but I am sure that you can think of 100 more games!

Buggy Number Pattern:
This simple is a fun way to practice numbers 1-100.  Sophia just placed an ant on each number square as she said the number.  This is PERFECT for number identification 1-100!


I also called out a few numbers to see what she knew.  For example, I would say "Find number 17!"  She would find it and place an ant on the picnic board.  It was like a little scavenger hunt for numbers!




Counting by 2's, 5's and 10's
Simply place an ant on the 2's as you count by 2's.  This can be done with 5's and 10's as well! So EASY, but SO effective!

Place Value Ants
Call out a number in the tens and ones place.  For example, I might say, "Four tens and five ones." The student would put an ant on the number 45.  What a GREAT way to teach place value!  Audrey really enjoyed this challenge!  You also did some MENTAL MATH!  I would say, "What is 10 less than 80? or What is 20 more than 70?"  This was the perfect practice!

Write and Wipe
The back side of the picnic board is a blank, which makes it perfect for writing numbers with a dry erase maker.
Even the littlest Moffatt Girl looks on as she watches her big sister show her how to see patterns in numbers!


The possibilities for this 100 Ants Picnic set are ENDLESS, but here are a few other ideas you can use:
Fractions
Grab a handful of blue and yellow ants.  Write a fraction for the ants that you grabbed.

Odd and Even Numbers
Place the yellow ants on the odd numbers and the even ants on the yellow numbers.

A Fistful of Counters:
This game is played by having a student grab one or two handfuls of ants and count them out one by one.  On the board, place the and on the number that represents the total selected.

Addition and Subtraction
Use the counters to practice simple addition and subtraction!
