This presentation is a great way to introduce positive and negative whole numbers to students for the first time in 6th grade. It directly correlates to standards [6-NS5] and [6-NS6] in the Common Core. However, this concept is frequently reviewed at the beginning of 7th and 8th grade because of the huge importance integers play in understanding the other standards. This lesson is designed to get students involved through questioning. The answers to each example are provided at the end of the PowerPoint. It can be easily converted into a Flip Book for Smart Board users.
Included is a worksheet that is perfect for a homework or classwork follow-up activity. It is 20 question worksheet that includes fill in the blank, short answer, and real world problems.
Thanks! I hope you enjoy!
