Activity
  1. Teach the students the “Five Little Ducks” rhyme.
  2. Role-play the rhyme using 5 students to represent the five little ducks. Start with all 5 ducks in front of the class and after each verse, as one of the ducks disappears, have one student hide near by.
  3. After each verse of the rhyme stop and talk about the number of ducks and clearly state the number fact:
    How many ducks came back?
    How many ducks are lost?
    Three ducks came back and two ducks are lost. 3 and 2 make 5 ducks altogether.
