#### Number bonds to 10

This activity is a great way to get kids to discover the number bonds to 10 for themselves. It leads them towards a true understanding of number bonds, rather than just a pattern of number facts to memorise. It is a very simple task, and kids really seem to enjoy it. The first picture is the worksheet (A3 with movable bottles), The second picture shows the task in action and the third is the completed product. By keeping the same set of 10 bottles and just moving one at a time, it really reinforces the idea that you are always making the same total. To see a video of the full task in action, as well as links to other areas of maths and possible questioning to develop understanding, please click here:
