Subtract with Objects

Subtract with Objects

Welcome to our subtract with objects worksheets!

Subtraction is the act of “taking away” or “finding the difference.” In the worksheets below, students will begin understanding the process of subtraction by marking off objects.

Using objects helps students visualize subtraction. These worksheets will be great for students who are just beginning to learn subtraction. They’ll also be good for visual or kinesthetic learners. You could also gather physical objects from your classroom or home to make the problems below more hands-on.

For a fun twist, you could even purchase some bear or frog counters. Once your students have mastered these worksheets, check out our other subtraction worksheets!
