**Title:** Wonder Number Line

**Description:**
This lesson allows students to become familiar with a number line. Students can explore a number line and develop knowledge of numerical concepts. While it covers a 6th grade standard, this lesson can be used as part of a 7th or 8th grade lesson on integers.
This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] (6) 9: Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates. [6-NS6]

**Subject:**Mathematics (6)

**Title:** How Low Can You Go?

**Description:**
In this lesson, students will identify and locate numberspostive and negative numbers, including decimals and fractions on a number line.
This lesson plan was created by exemplary Alabama Math Teachers through the AMSTI project.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] (6) 8: Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation. [6-NS5]

**Title:** Positively F.U.N. ! (fantastic, unique, and noteworthy) ways to idenitfy and add positive and negative integers)

**Description:**
This lesson will actively engage students to identify and add positive and negative integers. In cooperative groups, students will discuss everyday vocabulary that will activate students' existing background knowledge and set the purpose for understanding integers. Students will integrate new information with prior knowledge.
