Within this product, you will find the items I use in my own classroom to introduce a number line tool. After students create their number line 0-21, I collect and laminate them so students can use them as a tool for addition and subtraction later on. Another great option is to send their created number line home so they can teach their families what they learned about a number line.
PLEASE NOTE: This document prints on 11x17 paper.
Depending on your intended use of the number lines once they are created, you may want the number lines to be created by students on a certain size. I have included the following size options:
1. Approximately 5.5”x 34” when put together
2. Approximately 3.25”x 17” when put together
3. Approximately 2.5”x 14” when put together
If you are interested in the sequence of lessons that helped to build up to this particular lesson, or the lessons that follow (which teach students how to use the number line) please see my store or contact me.
