This life-size bunny number line is intended to help students actualize number lines in their minds. They will get practice with number order, counting forward, counting backward, more than/less than terminology, missing addends, missing subtrahends, skip counting and more.
The bunnies that are provided can be used to create a life-size number line on a floor or wall. Students will choose a card and demonstrate the problem on the card by hopping "bunny-style" up and down the number line.
I have also included a page of “bunny faces” that can be attached to strips of paper to make a headband.
I recommend printing the cards on card stock and/or laminating for durability.
Four types of cards are included:
Introductory: “Start at 2. Hop forward 3.”
Level two: “3 More than 6.”
Level three: 4+5= (in vertical format)
Level four: “Start at 5. How many hops to 8?” (missing addends and subtrahends)
These four levels are further divided for ease of printing. Addition and subtraction within 10/Addition & Subtraction within 20 (not included in the within 10 sets.)
-Start at 2 and hop on even numbers.
-Start a 1 and hop on odd numbers.
-Give two students problems demonstrating the communicative property and have them jump at the same time. (ex.: 4+5 and 5+4)
To go along I used a spring basket and put all the cards that we were using inside. Then the kids closed their eyes and drew a card out of the basket and followed the instructions.
