Counting Rods - how many ways can you make 10?!

by Bec Slack September 21, 2015

Counting rods are such a great early maths tool. We wanted to share a fun way to teach littles ones about numbers with this great activity. 

Pick a number, any number, and have the kids find the many ways that you can make the number using addition of smaller numbers! We picked 10. And after a few minutes our CleverKid had come up with a number of solutions to the answer! A great way of showing how you can 'fit' lots of little numbers into a bigger one!
