In this paper, differences in the implementation of a number activity called the snake game are studied. Nine Swedish preschool teachers worked in collaboration with a research team, enacting the same activity with their groups of 5-year-old children over a 3-month period. Variation theory forms the basis for the analysis of 67 videorecorded enactments. The results suggest that an activity such as the snake game can bring various aspects of numbers to the fore through differences in enactment. The activity became mathematically richer when the teacher compared children’s different finger patterns and used systematically varied examples of number relations. This study’s results contribute knowledge about characteristics of teaching that foregrounds numbers’ part-whole relations.
