We use the number zero to mean
there are no items. There are two ladybugs. There are zero butterflies. What number is missing? There are what ants?

We’re shown three different
pictures and three different sentences. In the first picture, there are
two ladybugs on the leaf. This is what the sentence tells
us. There are two ladybugs. The second picture shows us
that there are no butterflies on the leaf. The second sentence tells us
that there are zero butterflies. In the third sentence, the
number is missing. We need to count the ants and
write the missing number to complete the sentence: one, two, three. There are three ants. The missing number is number
three.

What number is missing? We’re shown a picture of a
leaf. There are what
caterpillars.

We’re shown a picture of a leaf
and we have to count the number of caterpillars. There are no caterpillars on
the leaf. So, the missing number is
zero. There are zero
caterpillars. We use the number zero to show
that there are no caterpillars on the leaf.
