Drawing math with penguins

Remember last week (here) ? Here comes our second picture ! Invite your child to invent a word problem that matches the drawing.

Penguins

Here are a few examples:

  • There were 12 penguins on the ice,  4 penguins in the water, and 1 penguin jumping out of the water. How many penguins were there all together? (12 + 4 + 1 = 17)
  • There were 15 penguins on the ice. 3  jumped in the water. How many penguins were left on the ice? (15 – 3 = 12)
  • There were 4 penguins in the water. Each penguin ate 5 fish. How many fish did the  penguins eat all together? ( 4 x 5 = 20)
  • There were 16 eggs. There were 2 eggs under each penguin. How many penguins were seating on eggs ? (16 ÷ 2 = 8)

Until next time !


Would love to hear from you !
