youcubed: Toppings (1-2)

This activity allows students to practice counting and to begin exploring the relationship between numbers.

This problem draws on embodied cognition since students are connecting movement to the counting they are doing. This allows students to understand the content at a deeper level because their physical movements are connecting to the problem, strengthening their understanding of counting and number. Students also draw a visual representation of the problem which is a valuable tool for solving maths problems.
