Answer:

Explanation:

I used to model he problem

4 bugs landed on each leaf. Then 3 bugs flew away from each of the leaves

I drew 4 counters and marked X on 3 counters, 1 is left

4 – 3 = 1

So, 1 bug is left on each leaf.

**Teacher Directions:** Use to model. 4 bugs landed on each leaf. Then 3 bugs flew away from each of the leaves. How many bugs are left on each leaf? Trace the counters you used. Draw Xs on the counters to show the bugs that flew away. Write the subtraction number sentences.
