Picture Subtraction

Picture Subtraction Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a visual-based activity designed to introduce young learners to the concept of subtraction through pictorial representation. It displays rows of colorful images such as apples, pumpkins, hats, shoes, and bananas, each set corresponding to a subtraction problem. The students are instructed to cross out a certain number of items from each set and then write the number of items remaining to complete the subtraction equation provided. The use of familiar objects makes the concept of ‘taking away’ concrete and understandable for beginners.

The worksheet is teaching students the basic operation of subtraction by visually demonstrating what happens when items are taken away from a group. It helps students associate the abstract concept of subtraction with a tangible action, thereby deepening their understanding of the process. This approach also aids in developing counting skills, as they must count both the items to be crossed out and those that remain. The use of images is especially effective for visual learners and helps to maintain engagement with the task.
