Hopping On the Number Line

We taped the numbers 0 – 20 in the hallway to make a walk-on number line! We used two dice to play a game: One die had plus and minus symbols, the other had the numbers 1, 2, and 3.

Students took turns rolling the dice to make a classmate move up and down the number line.

Maddie got a +2 so she moved up the line.

Some people even had so many minus symbols rolled that they went off the number line! Liam was on the 2 but a -3 was rolled!

We had fun learning that plus moves up the number line as the result is a bigger number, and minus moves down the line as the result is a smaller number.
