One Hundred Hungry Ants

One Hundred Hungry Ants

by Elinor J. Pinczes Illustrated by Bonnie MacKain

This hilarious read-aloud picture book about 100 ants making their way to a picnic is a great way to introduce students to counting, multiplication, and other math concepts. One hundred hungry ants head toward a picnic to get yummies for their tummies, but stop to change their line formation, showing different divisions of one hundred, which causes them to lose both time and food in the end.
