These Caterpillar Counting Floor number lines are a great tool to use in your math class! The cute caterpillars will come along as your students practice counting and working with numbers.
There are four different number lines. The red/blue number line is 0-20. The green/pink number line counts by 5s up to 100. The orange/blue number line counts by 10s up to 100. The yellow/green number line has smaller numbers and counts 1-180.
Students could help arrange the numbers in order, then walk the number line as they count aloud
The teacher could hand the numbers to students out of order to place in the number line, facilitating a discussion about number sense - “Where does 5 go? How do you know?”
When learning addition or subtraction, students can move along the floor number line to solve math problems
Students can take the numbers 1-180 and place them in a big number line, then in the shape of a hundreds chart.
You could use the smaller 1-180 number line as a growing number line in your classroom throughout the school year!
