This is a collaborative activity. Students are asked to act out different "football plays" and make connections between the game of football and the addition and subtraction of integers. They will demonstrate their conceptual understanding on a number line.
Included in this document are:
1) Instructional Suggestions (pg. 2)
2) Integer Football Matching Activity (pg. 3)
