Making Number Lines in Math

osc2
Following a discussion about how big the number chart (numbers 1-120) really is, 1K decided to cut apart a whole number chart so that we could put it back together again…as a number line!  Students worked in partnerships to complete this activity, and boy did they have a lot of fun!

There were a lot of a-ha moments in 1K as students discovered just how how far that number line went.  When students finished making their number lines, they played a game called Hide the Number.  One student covered up several numbers.  The other student had to figure out which numbers were covered.  This was a great game for practicing number recognition and place value.
