The Monsters decide to plant two gardens, each with the identical number of monster melon plants. When Aunt Tulips arrives to deliver the seeds, the Monsters are out collecting gardening tools. She leaves two piles, each containing the same number of seeds. However, one pile is stacked high, while the other is spread out.

The Monsters argue about which pile has more seeds and then proceed to develop strategies to discover the truth. This provides an opportunity to explore number conservation and one to one correspondence. In deciding to water their garden, the Monsters come across two water hoses – one wrapped loosely and the other tightly coiled. Again, they figure out that just because something looks different, it doesn’t mean it is.

Our field trip is to a bakery, where we find out how a batch of dough that creates six rolls can actually be the same size as a batch that creates only one loaf of bread.
