Conservation – Counting and Quantity Principles

Conservation is the counting and quantity principle referring to the understanding that the count for a set group of objects stays the same no matter whether they are spread out or close together.

If a student counts a group of items that are close together and then needs to recount after you spread them out, they may not have developed an understanding of the principle of conservation.

For a full summary of all counting principles, read the original blog post.
