This learning activity enables children to develop their understanding of subtraction. Ensure the children have a bank of counters (or other concrete objects) available whilst completing this activity. Children place a counter on each image then take away as appropriate to complete the subtraction. Alternatively, children can cross out the images as appropriate, prior to recording the correct answer.
Please be advised, unlike our other Learning Activities, this resource does not link to our ten themes.
