This life-size bunny number line is intended to help students actualize number lines in their minds. They will get practice skip counting, adding, subtraction, learning more than/less and much more! Your kids will love working with number lines!
Materials needed for the Number Lines: Adding and Subtracting within 20:
Paper or Card stock
Four types of cards are included:
Introductory: “Start at 2. Hop forward 3.”
Level two: “3 More than 6.”
Level three: 4+5= (in vertical format)
Level four: “Start at 5. How many hops to 8?” (missing addends and subtrahends)
These four levels are further divided for ease of printing. Addition and subtraction within 10/Addition & Subtraction within 20 (not included in the within 10 sets.) This makes it easier for you to choose which level is most appropriate for your students & helps control printing waste.
Additional ideas for using the number lines:
-Start at 2 and hop on even numbers.
-Start a 1 and hop on odd numbers.
-Give two students problems demonstrating the communicative property and have them jump at the same time. (ex.: 4+5 and 5+4)
I used a spring basket and put all the cards that we were using inside. Then the kids closed their eyes and drew a card out of the basket and followed the instructions on the card.
