Product Description
Ordering rational numbers isn't the funnest thing for students, so you can make it fun by letting students get active and forming a human number line! This is a second version of the original product found at this link. The concept is the same, but now you have a whole new set of rational numbers (integers, fractions, and decimals) to use.

Directions for the teacher: Cut out the rational numbers, and randomly distribute them to your students.

Directions for the students: Look at your card, and decide where it belongs on the number line below. Is it positive or negative? Would you move to the left or to the right? How many steps is it from zero? Without any speaking, assemble yourselves into a ‘living’ number line. Your goal is to complete task correctly in less than 3 minutes. Good luck!

If time allows, we will collect the cards, redistribute them, and repeat activity to see if you can set a new class record!

You can also have students tape the numbers to the board, rather than holding them. You have a few students place their numbers at a time, then have a class discussion about any adjustments that need to be made. Have fun with it, and change it to fit the needs of your class :)

You will receive 27 rational numbers that you can quickly print and cut, a number line to use as a reference, and a set of directions. Your students will love it!
