Big Ideas: We can use the number line to model addition of measurements and to show total distance. In this lesson, students will explore the relationship between measurement and a number line. They will consider the similarities between measuring tools and a number line then use a number line model to measure the total distance traveled. In Unit 2 students explored standard units of measure. In this lesson students are making develop a deeper understanding that a number on a number line represents a quantity of that number or the magnitude of that number. Vocabulary: measurement, distance, number line, addition, sum, total Special Materials: Math tools: color tiles, unifix cubes Student number line 0-20 for each student Class number line (optional)
