Earth Day Number Practice 0-20

How many trees can your pupils plant? Practice numbers 0-20 with several related activities. For the first, kids match images of trees to numbers. They then match the number symbols to number words, using a word bank. The final activity asks individuals to draw the number of trees that correspond with the given number.
