Let's hang out the numbers.

Yay, I found some creative mojo today and finished my new products.  Introducing my new series called 'Make a Number Line'.  For the first instalment, I've used From the Pond's winter clothes set.  The idea of this product is for students to engage in any lesson to do with number/place value and physically hang the numbers to create a number line.  I developed this idea (you guessed it) hanging out my washing. 

Here is how I created my number lines.

Print the cards to A3 and laminate.  I found a tall container that fits the string, pegs and cards.  Make sure that the string or rope you will use is durable and at least 3 metres long.
The photo above shows the 0-100 pack.  As a starting point you can ask the students with the 0, 50 and 100 cards to put their numbers on the number line first.  This will make it easier for the other students and then can lead into discussions about 'what half of a number is?'.
Sorry for the crammed number line - needed to squish for the photo.  Thanks to my partner too who is hiding behind the corner holding this up.  You could call students out one or two at a time to put their number on the line.  They could work individually or with a partner.  If a student puts the number in the incorrect place you or the other students could guide them to where the number should go. 

It's very important for students to understand number placement and this activity can be used as a great class lesson.  I've made four packs in the winter clothes set 0-20, 0-50, 0-100 and 0-1000. 
Keep reading to see how you can grab a pack for yourself!
