This activity is designed to help your students understand that 1/2 and 1/4 are numbers on a number line and to master counting by halves and fourths. This activity is also the perfect pre-lesson to teach right before measuring length!
One set of activities is for halves and the other is fourths, so you could do one or both depending on the level of your students!
Included for both halves and fourths:
1. Introductory activity for students to add to their math notebook
2. Number Line sections for students to create a human number line and repetitive counting by halves and fourths practice
3. Number Line Activity Cards and ideas on how to do it in your classroom with answer sheet and answer key!
This really helps my students learn and retain finding halves and fourths on number lines and prepares my students for measuring with a ruler every year! I post the number line in my classroom so they can refer to and remember!
*NOTE: many of the pages make up the number lines for the human number line activity and is made to be big enough to be posted up in the classroom. This file contains 3 activities for halves and fourths.
