Kids will love this super cute gingerbread number line game! It’s a fun way to solve addition problems up to twelve.
This hands on activity is an awesome way to get kids involved in using number lines to add.
I gave each student the following materials:
~Number line (laminated for added durability)
~Erasable marker and damp cloth
~Standard dice (1 to 6)
~Recording sheet and a pencil
How To Play
Each student began by rolling a dice. Next they used an erasable marker to mark that number on the number line with a dot. They rolled the dice again, but this time they used an erasable marker to hop that number of spaces to find the answer. My students recorded the sum on their recording sheet. Then they used the damp cloth to clean their number line and start again. My students loved this game and kept playing until their recording sheet was full!
