## Topic

Counting and Arranging

## Description

The image displays nine farm animals: rooster, duck, hen, sheep, brown hen, goat, another hen, horse, and yellow rooster. They are arranged in a row and numbered from 1 to 9.

The task is to arrange more than eight animals from the collection in a row and count them. The solution shows nine animals arranged in a row and numbered 1 to 9.

In general, understanding how to compare and order items numerically is a fundamental math skill, especially when dealing with number sets or groups. By practicing these examples, students can grasp the underlying principles of comparison, which include recognizing patterns, ordering values, and applying logic to find solutions.

Seeing multiple worked-out examples is essential for students, as it provides a clear and varied set of illustrations that reinforce the learning process. Each example demonstrates slightly different approaches or configurations, which helps students build a well-rounded understanding of the concept.

**Teacher’s Script: **Let's look at this example together. Notice how the items are arranged, and think about why they are ordered in this particular way. Each number has a specific place based on its value, and seeing the items arranged this way helps us understand the concept of ordering. Now, let's try to find patterns in this arrangement and see if we can apply the same logic to similar examples.
