Number lines


Posted by Miss Arkley | Posted in Decimals, Number | Posted on December 3, 2014

Use a 1 metre piece of string as the number line.

Give 5 students a playing card to peg on the string where it would be placed on a number line.

Discuss “How did you know where it should go?” Strategies for identifying how to place numbers onto a number line.

Extension: Instead of using playing cards, create cards with decimals or fractions or a mixture of both.
