This worksheet is a hands-on activity designed to teach division through a real-world scenario involving donuts and children. It features images of four children and a row of donuts at the bottom of the page. The students are instructed to cut out the donuts and paste them into the boxes above each child to distribute them equally. This task combines the concepts of division and equal sharing in a way that is tangible and relatable to young learners.
The purpose of the worksheet is to introduce students to the concept of division as equal sharing. By physically cutting and distributing donuts, students can visually and practically understand how division works. The activity aims to teach students that division is essentially dividing something into equal parts or groups, in this case, distributing donuts evenly among a set number of people. It also encourages the development of fine motor skills through the cutting and pasting process and provides a foundation for understanding division before moving on to more abstract numerical methods.
