Make a number line counting by ones from zero to 10.
Students make a number line. It should have evenly spaced tick marks, arrows on both ends, a straight line, and labels with all numbers from zero to 10.
What does each number on your number line represent? Give an example.
A distance from zero, measured in same-sized spaces. Possible example: The 7 is 7 same-sized spaces away from the zero.
