Math Lesson - "Fun With Fish"

1st & 2nd Grades

Fun With Fish!

Something Fishy Bump Games

There are two games of bump provided. The first version focuses on the addition and subtractions strategy of doubles plus one and doubles minus one. The second version focuses on doubles plus two and doubles minus two.

Fish Bowl Estimation

 I go to my local dollar store and get small clear containers to serve as the fish bowls in this activity.
I use this as a partner or small group lesson, but it can be whole group lesson led by the teacher too.
Estimation is such an important mathematical skill. Repeated exposure to estimation activities leads to much stronger number sense. This estimation activity will compliment any ocean or fish unit that you are teaching. A recording sheet is provided for this activity.
