Help students learn how to create equations and solve for missing addends using a number line. By helping the penguin try to reach his dinner you will practice using the plus, minus and equals sign. Students will use a number line to visualize and manipulate to create equations, learn how to arrange a typical equation and solve for a missing addend. Each practice page builds on the last, helping to solidify what students have already learned with application!
