Quantities can be changed by adding or taking away

Using a tower of 5 cubes, bricks, lego, knock 1 cube off to show there are 4 cubes left. Now try with 4 cubes, 3 cubes, 2 cubes and 1 cube. 

Each time you build a tower say the sentence 'First there was ___ then ___ now ___ .'


Have a bag with towers of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 cubes in. Take out 2 towers and if they add up to 5 then they can keep them. If they don't make 5 then put them back in the bag. Remember to take it in turns. The first player to make three 5s is the winner.

Who has the most number of towers?
