After comparing sets of cakes, students choose the set that has "3 more than" the other set, and check the corresponding box. The second part of the math worksheet asks children to count the candy, add 3 more, then find the total number.

This worksheet includes several FutureFit Extension Activities that highlight 21st Century skills like critical thinking, service mentality, and creativity. These FutureFit Extension Activities are designed to reinforce the concepts included in the worksheet activity while integrating real-world skills. They can be used as in-class independent practice or group activities, or assigned for take-home or independent work.

FutureFit Extension Activities


Using the model presented on the worksheet, have students create their own “3 More” worksheet using paper and art supplies. If necessary, model for students how to replicate the groupings found on the worksheet, and give them suggestions for things that they can use to create their groupings (i.e. animals, coins, flowers, etc.). When students are finished creating their worksheets, have them exchange worksheets with a partner and solve the problems on their sheets!


In pairs or small groups, have students close their eyes and grab a handful (or two) of small math manipulatives from a bag or box; they can use tally marks to count the number of plastic math manipulatives each group has. When students are finished tallying, have them compare tally marks to see who has how many more, or less manipulatives.
