There’re six groups of two. Pick the correct model.

And then we’re asked to skip count to find how many there are in total. We’re told that there’re six groups of two. And we’re given four different models to choose from. Which one shows six groups of two?

Our first model shows two groups. But they both contain different amounts. We have one group of six and one group of two. So we know that the first model is not correct.

Let’s look at the second model. In our second model, there’re two groups with six in each. So we know it can’t be the second model.

Let’s look at the third example. This time, there’re six groups. And there’re two dots in each group. There’re six groups of two. And there’re six groups of three in the last model. So we know that the correct model is the third one because in this example, there’re six groups. And there’re two dots in each group.

Now let’s skip count to find out how many there are in total. The dots are in groups of two. So we’re going to skip count in twos: two, four, six, eight, 10, and 12; two, four, six, eight, 10, 12.

And so out of our four models, the one that’s correct is the one that shows six squares with two dots in each square, six groups of two. There’re 12 dots in total.
