*There's three chickens and 2 horses. How many legs in all?*It really pushed their thinking because they had to know more than one thing: the animal and how many legs the animal had. I mentioned that they all started by adding the animals and then slowly came to other realizations.

So as I have been thinking about my next bunch of centers I thought that I would like to continue this kind of thinking. Here is my freebie: How Many Legs in All?

The students will drop 3 pencil cap erasers onto the board. Draw the three animals the erasers land on. Add up the amount of legs (three addends). Then take one animal {and their legs!} away.

This was also my first foray at making my own set of graphics :)

I hope you and your students enjoy!
