**Goals: **
| Students will be able to successfully show and write all the ways to make 5 through 9. Students will be able to answer questions and explain the process of finding sums. |

**Objectives:**
| Given a set of ten snap cubes, students will be able to work cooperatively to model and write addition facts for the sums of five through 9. |

**Materials:**
| snap cubes |

**Introduction:**
| Read the following math riddle: 3 ants arrive early to a part. An hour later, two more ants arrive. How many ants arrived at the party? |
