^{rd}- 4

^{th}

### Description

The concept of division is a tricky one for students, and it's important to build that foundation with hands on, real world experiences. This resource has everything you need to build division concepts with your students--a game with follow up activities! Engaging, meaningful, and effective!

This resource has what you need for a two day lesson to help you introduce the concept of division concepts through an active game where students are "animals" in a herd and need to rearrange themselves into groups--including remainders! I have included full directions with photos to show you the lessons in action, suggestions for anchor charts or classroom displays, and any forms or sheets you would need to do it yourself!

Students work to write multiplication and division number sentences to represent how their herd divides! There is a follow up activity to do similar division with provided animal "counters" and then a number of pages of practice with basic division--3 pages of word problems as well as several other pages of division computation (2 and 3 digit). This resource is geared toward helping students build understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division and is appropriate for grades 3 and 4.
