    Yea, I knew that would get your attention.

    OK, my daughter has a homework assignment that we could use some help on.
    What we, yes ALL of us, need to do is think of objects or things around our world that come in groups of .....
    2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's, 9's, 10's, 11's, 12's.
    (And we need to try to think of 5 different things for each category.)


    Like we've thought of.......

    For 2's
    socks
    eyes
    feet
    hands
    ears​


    And for 3's
    wheels on a tricycle



    So there's the challenge.

    I'm pretty sure that the hardest numbers will be 7 and 11.


    Come on People!!
    This is 3rd Grade homework!!!
    We should beable to do this!!!

    THINK!!


    [MOVE]Oh yea, we have till next Thurs. (Jan.6-05) to get this done!![/MOVE]
    Thanks!!!
