Address & Directions


Invite your child to scoop up some rocks. Put these rocks in one pile and invite him/her to scoop up fewer rocks for a new pile. Ask your child how he/she knows there are fewer rocks in this new pile. Does he/she count them or look at the size of the pile? This can be tricky- If the rocks are bigger, the pile may look bigger but have fewer rocks!Rock On helps your child learn to make comparisons between bigger and smaller numbers. This activity also promotes critical thinking skills. For example, a pile may look bigger, but counting shows that there are actually fewer rocks in the pile because the rocks are bigger.
