All Things Opposite - Enrichment 22.1

Consult an almanac to find elevations for five locations that are above sea level and five that are places below sea level. Prealgebra practitioners use these elevations to help them understand a real-world application of positive and negative integers. They are asked to find the opposite number for each elevation, as well as the absolute value. Then they determine which location has the greatest absolute value. This is a useful assignment to help address CCSS.Math.Content.7.NS.1.a.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
