Bug Number Matching Game

K-3 Teacher Resources
PDF | 3 pages | Grades: PK - 1

An activity for children to use when learning to represent numbers 1-10 in picture, word, and standard forms.

Print out the pages with the numbers and words on cardstock and set aside. Then print and cut out the bugs. You might like to store the bugs in a ziplock bag so that they stay together.

Choose a gameboard for your students to use (standard or word form). Students must match up the number of dots on each bug with the corresponding number.

As an extension activity, have students choose a bug and make a collection of objects that is greater than, less than, or equal to the amount on the bug’s back.

This activity would work great in guided math rotations or as a math center activity.
