In this activity a jar of sweets is divided between two children. One half of the screen will illustrate the division by grouping the sweets. The other will show sharing. In grouping, as there are two children, two sweets are taken each time. Pairs of sweets are counted out and put into a box until there are no sweets left. In sharing, one sweet at a time is taken and placed in a box beneath each child consecutively until all the sweets have been shared out. The activity is then repeated with different items and numbers.
