Introduction to the Number Line

Students explore addition and subtraction of positive and negative numbers using a number line. In this number line lesson plan, students observe the teacher moving a magnet on a magnetic number line according to the operation being performed. All combinations of positive and negative numbers are modeled, followed by students practicing with a number line independently.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
