This Number Rods activity & project also includes:
- Join to access all included materials
Working in a math center or an "I finished early" work station, young mathematicians will match in sequence pre-set-up rods of unifix cubes to numbers on a number line. To help differentiate tens from ones, use different colors to represent them. This activity helps young learners practice counting for meaning and allows them to visually see that numbers get larger as they progress sequentially. Hands-on and fun!
