In this activity, we will be dividing by 2.
Here are 6 pencils.
2 pencils fit into each pencil box.
How many pencil boxes can be filled with these pencils?
We have to share 6 pencils into boxes that can hold only 2 pencils.
6 ÷ 2 = 3
3 pencil boxes are needed.
Does that make sense? Let's have a go at some questions now.
