Teaching Resource:  63 Partition Number Bees and Matching Hives

NOTE:  Be sure to also check out our free teaching resource (Hexagon Hives) to match these Partition Bees.

This maths teaching resources includes 63 partition bees (with a number partitioned into two circles on the wings) and 63 hives with the matching quantities.  This set covers numbers from 3 to 10, but we've included a page of blanks for you to print and write as many as you need.

Download, print, and use this teacher resource flexibly in your maths lessons.   Each A4 page includes three bees and three hives.  Some ideas for teaching include:

- matching games (such as memory or snap);
- bingo (students select a number of "hives" and then need to collect the bees to match;
- asking your students to create an addition story or model to match the partition bees;

- selecting groups of students to work together (the ones with the bees adding to the same quantity will work together).
- sorting the bees into types of addition facts (e.g.  Doubles, Make 10, Count On);
Another student favourite is to place the bees out on the table and then ask students to splat (with a fly swatter) the ones that match a hive selected by the caller.  The first one to splat the bee can collect it.
