Division Math Center - Turtle Tip

Division Math Center Turtle Tip

Division is one of the most challenging math topics to teach in the early years. Our little learners need a firm understanding of numbers as well as equality, fair shares and repeated subtraction. Our printable math center will help you provide an engaging activity for students to explore division in a hands-on way and make the leap over to recording it formally. 

Your students will 'tip' some counters from a little container onto their turtle and divide them equally! With their hands, they will divide the counters out onto the spaces on their turtle.

We have provided turtles for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 equal groups on the turtle shell. Students will record their division action on the number sentence with a dry erase marker - or the worksheet provided.
