# MULTIPLICATION & DIVISION – PHOTOGRAPHS – 30-legged creature

Arghh! This creature was crawling along our car port ceiling when I took this photograph of a 30-legged creature. We counted … and think we see 15 pairs of legs. What a different way to discuss multiples of 2 with your Stage 1 students. What if there were 2 creatures like this – how many pairs altogether? How many legs is that? How do you know? How many legs on 5 creatures? 10 creatures? 100 creatures? What is an easy way to help you count by 30s? e.g think of your groups of 3 tables facts and add a zero? Quickly add on mentally by 30 each time?
