Count the given oranges. Show the same number by drawing dots.

In this problem, we can see a picture of some oranges. And the first thing we’re told to do is to count them. After we’ve counted them, we’re then told to show the same number by drawing dots. And we can see we’ve got three possible answers to choose from. But we’ll come to those in a moment. To begin with, let’s get counting these oranges. Now we need to make sure that we count each orange only once.

How could we make sure we don’t miss any out and we only count them once? Because these are pictures of oranges, what if we put a counter on top of each picture as we say each number, one, two, three, four, five. There are five oranges. Now we need to show the same number — that’s five — by drawing dots. Let’s count as we go, one, two, three, four, five, five dots to match our five oranges.

Now, which of our three possible answers shows the same number of dots? One, two, there are only three dots in the first group. One, two, three, four, five, there are five dots in the second group. We counted five oranges. To show the same number by drawing dots, we needed to draw five dots.
