Math- Teaches parts of a whole by slicing the fruit in segments. Each segment has the number symbol and a seed representation.
Math- Reinforce counting skills by asking students to put 3 fruits in the bowl or take 4 pieces out of the bowl; add two pieces to the bowl or take away 1 piece. Students gain practice in counting, addition, and subtraction.
Fine Motor- Students use bilateral coordination to hold and connect or peel apart the segments of fruit.
