Bowling 10

Bowling take-away

A tried-and-tested way of  introducing simple subtraction. This worksheet was intended to be used along side a DIY bowling set. The pupils can use 5 or 10 pins. Have them bowl a ball and count how many pins they have knocked down. Encourage them to write the missing numbers. Here’s an example script with 5 pins, just to give you an idea:

Adult: How many pins are we starting with?

Student: One, two, three, four, five. Five pins.

Student bowls the ball knocking 3 pins over. 

Adult: How many pins did you knock over?

Student: One, two, three. Three pins.

Adult: Great! Let’s write three after the subtraction sign.  Now how many pins are left?

Student counts remaining pins. 

Student: One, two. Two pins.

Adult: Fantastic! Let’s write two after the equals sign.  Five pins subtract three pins equals two pins. Can you say the sum with me?

Adult and Student: Five subtract three equals two.

Bowling 4

Count the pins 1 -10.

Just print and laminate and you are good to go. The student will count the pins and then find the corresponding number.
