Playing This Fun Bug Math Game
There are 2 versions of the book included with your download.
The first is a colored version where children will count the number of insects while associating color names. They will count up to 10 different bugs.
The second version is a black and white version which kids can use as a coloring book. The number of bugs is mentioned and they will fill in the picture with the correct color.
Print out the version you prefer (or both!), cut up the pages and staple them together if you wish.
