100 Hungry Ants
Second graders listen as the teacher reads the story, "100 Hungry Ants." They discuss the book, and using blocks, 2nd graders arrange them in a line (as the ants were in the book). Students rearrange the blocks to show various groupings of 100 ants. They discuss that there are STILL 100 ants. Students transfer this into math sentences. Students write their own version of the story with a group. The groups read their story to the class.
