Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be counting the number of animals and halving the result.



Count the elephants and divide them into two equal groups.

How many are there in each group?




There are 16 elephants in total.

We can divide them into two equal groups.



8   8



There are 8 elephants in each group.

So half of 16 is 8.

We say that 16 ÷ 2 = 8


Does that make sense? If so, let's move on to the questions.
