Lamb Day

Math Lesson
for Lamb Day

The students will count sheep by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's.




  1. Print out 100 sheep from the Sheep Printout.

  2. If working with younger students, number the sheep 1-100.  For older students, divide the class into 10 pairs/groups and assign each group the numbers they should write on 10 sheep.  For example, group 1 will number the sheep 1-10, group 2 will number their sheep 11-20, etc.

  3. Once the sheep have been numbered, arrange the sheep along a wall or chalkboard in numerical order.  Tape the sheep onto the wall.

  4. Using a red marker have the students count by 10's to reach 100.  Put a square around every 10 on the sheep with the red marker.  For example, when the students have completed counting, 10, 20, 30, 40, etc. will have a red square around them. 

  5. Using a green marker have the students count by 5's.  Circle every 5 with the marker.

  6. Using a blue marker underline counting by 2's.  This step may want to be skipped with younger students.

  7. Pass out the Counting Sheep Worksheet and have the students write their numbers counting by 10's, 5's, and 2's.  For younger students, cut the portion of the worksheet dealing with the 2's off the bottom.


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Have a lesson on addition story problems.  For example, 3 sheep jumped over the fence, 2 more sheep jumped over, how many sheep jumped altogether?

  2. Cut out a large sheep shape.  Ask the students to estimate how many cotton balls will fill the shape.  Find the actual number and compare the estimates to that number.
