PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My students were finding real numbers fairly easy so I wanted an activity where they could practice but also move around the classroom. I scoured the Internet but none of the activities I found were what I wanted :( I wanted something cute. I wanted the students to have fun and move around while practicing what they had learned. Finally, I decided to spend some time creating an activity that would suit my needs and the needs of my students.

The activity I created was the Clothes Line activity. The teacher creates a number line using a cloth clothes line and places integers on the number line – numbers -20 to +20. When the students enter the classroom, the teacher will put them in groups of four. Each group will receive a “group card”. The card has four real numbers printed on it and it tells the students to create two of their own real numbers. The students will then classify their numbers as rational or irrational. Rational numbers will be written on a shirt and the irrational numbers will be written on a pair of pants. Once all the numbers are on the shirts and pants the students should decorate their piece of clothing and hang it up to “dry” on the number line. Oh, and their numbers must be in the correct order!

My students had a lot of fun with this activity and it gave me the chance to correct some misconceptions that I had not caught in earlier lessons.
