Activity Overview


Review the number line with whole numbers briefly; have students create their own number lines in a notebook, on chart paper, or by standing in a row evenly spaced apart. Draw attention to the space in between the whole numbers, and ask students about the value of a spot that is not labeled by a whole number. This activity is more of an instructional comic, although consider having students create their own instructional comic to explain fraction number lines to each other!


Be sure to point out what whole you are using. For a special challenge, encourage students to think carefully by changing the whole 0 to 2 or 0 to 10. (1/2 of 10 is 5; 2/5 of 10 is 4)
