Picture Subtraction Worksheets
Using visuals is a great habit to get into with your students. Many students have shown that an overwhelming majority of the population within the United States are visual learners/. If you have paid attention to the transformation of media over the years, it is evident that our favorite mediums are adjusting to this. Research has also shown us that whether you are visual learner or not, visual presentation stick with us longer in minds. We also process visual information much faster than in text or number form. When we put all these studies together it is evident that the more visuals, we can provide students with, the better chances that they have to do well. These worksheets help students learn how to perform subtraction through the use of images and pictures.

Can Pictures Be Helpful to Learn Subtraction?
During the early ages, when children start going to school and are new to gaining knowledge about different subjects, there are a variety of methods used for engaging children. When kids are little, they usually tend to have a smaller attention span, which is why there are a lot of various methods used for keeping them busy and make sure that they learn something useful.
There are a number of strategies that are used for helping children learn through fun ways, such as through games and activities. When it comes to mathematics, several methods are used for making children learn basic operations. They are taught what numbers are, how to count, and in various places, tracing is used for helping children remember how the number looks like and how it can be written down.
When children are being taught what addition and subtraction are, the most effective strategy is using hands on activities and when those modalities are not available, visuals such as pictures and images can in handy. Whether it appears on a page or flashcards or a worksheet, children tend to be more interested when they see colors, and there are fewer chances for them to be distracted. Using pictures to help children learn the basics of subtraction is a pretty smart idea. You can place objects or fruits and tell them that the bigger pile of the fruit has to let go of the smaller pile. Once they are done, tell them to color the picture, they will be more than just happy!
We can just represent subtraction equations in visual form. For example, what if we wanted to find the difference between 9 and 4. We would normally write this equation as: 9 - 4 =. We can visually present the same equation as with the help of apples, like you’ll see below. This allows for a nice way to see exactly what is going on in that equation.
