bookshelves: math, math-arrays, math-remainders, math-division
Read in February, 2008

Who this book would be for: 2-5
Activity: Read book and then reread while students use manipulatives to show how the ant was unable to fit into the group. Once the groups of ants were divided evenly the ant was no longer a remainder.
This book is a great example of how a large group can be divided into smaller groups and sometimes in order to create equal groups there may be remainders. Using manipulatives with your students will help them understand that depending on how you separate your groups will determine how many will be remaining or how you can make even groups without remainders.
