# Making 14 - Lesson for Kindergarten, Chapter - Composing Numbers

In the "Making 14" lesson, specifically designed for Kindergarten students as part of the "Composing Numbers" chapter within the "Additional Practice with Numbers up to 20" unit, young learners will embark on an exciting journey to understand the concept of the number 14 through engaging activities. Through the "14 in School Worksheet," students will explore various ways to compose and decompose the number 14, using objects and scenarios familiar to them from their school environment. This hands-on activity not only reinforces their counting skills but also enhances their understanding of how numbers can be grouped in different ways.

Moreover, the "7 Continents and 7 Seas Worksheet" introduces students to a global perspective, connecting the number 14 to real-world concepts by identifying 7 continents and 7 seas. This activity not only broadens their geographical knowledge but also emphasizes the significance of the number 14 in understanding our planet.

Learning to compose and decompose numbers is foundational in developing strong number sense, a crucial skill in early mathematics education. It helps students understand the relationships between numbers, an essential step towards grasping more complex mathematical concepts in the future.

• ### Activity 1 / 14 in School Worksheet

Before beginning this worksheet, you can first remind your kids that adding different sets of numbers can give you the same total. Give them simple examples, like 2+3 =5, and also 4+1 =5. Now, test your children’s understanding by asking them to give you some more examples. Then, you can work through this exercise. Help them count the objects, and then trace a line to the missing number that makes the total 14.

• ### Activity 2 / 7 Continents and 7 Seas Worksheet

Before starting this worksheet, remind your kids the different continents we have in the world. Now, teach them that different numbers added together can give the same figure. Give your kids simple equations, like adding 2+2 =4, and also 3+1 =4. Ask your students if they can give you other examples, and then look at the simple additions in this printout. Help your students work them all out, and then circle all of the equations that make 14.
