Last week I started sharing some ocean themed printables with you. Today I have some ocean themed counting worksheets to share with you. They were designed to be used with LEGO, but you could easily use a variety of counting materials with them. You will find a list of counting materials listed later in this post.
Ocean Themed Counting Worksheets
Getting the Ocean Themed Counting Worksheets Ready
The first thing you will need to do is print out the Ocean Themed Counting Worksheets. You don’t have to print out the whole set. If you like you can print out just a few number mats at a time.
The mats are really colorful! You will want to print out the ocean themed counting worksheets on a color printer.
You will need to a variety of different types of bricks for these worksheets. The long bricks work best for the Tally Marks section. You can use any type of bricks you like in the Number of Bricks section.
Other Counting Materials
If you would rather not use LEGO for this activity you could use any of the following:
Tally Mark Materials
- Small Popsicle Sticks
- Sections of Pipe Cleaners
Number of Bricks Materials
- Pom Poms
- Bottle Caps
Exploring the Counting Worksheets
You will want to have your children read the sentence at the top of each worksheet. Then you will want them to count the ocean pictures displayed. The mat for the number nine doesn’t say how many strands of seaweed are displayed. I thought it would be fun to have one of the counting worksheets ask children just to count the pictures.
After figuring out the number they are exploring on that counting worksheet, they will need to put the right number of narrow LEGO in the Tally Mark section. Then they can put the right number of bricks in the Number of Bricks section.
Children can check their work by placing the LEGO from one section at a time onto the ocean pictures.
