In this lesson, students solve word problems that invite them to use the "take from ten" subtraction strategy. For example, in solving the problem "When Claudia brought home her 17 apples, she put 10 in a bowl and 7 on the table. Then, she decided to give 9 apples to her babysitter. How many apples did Claudia have left?" students might take 9 apples from the set of 10, and then add the 1 remaining apple to the other 7 to find the solution. Throughout the lesson, they record their work with drawings and number bonds.
