#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will use pictures to help us to subtract or take away.

Look at this picture:

Count all the rabbits:

 1      2      3      4      5      6      7

The whole group has 7 rabbits.

Count the group that is crossed out:

 1      2

2 rabbits are crossed out.

Count the group that is left when we start with 7 and take away 2.

 1      2      3      4      5

When you start with 7 and take away 2, you are left with 5.

There are 5 rabbits left.

7 - 2 = 5

Let's have a go at some questions - they're not all about rabbits!
