set of simple number lines tasks

set of simple number lines tasks

A set of tasks suitable for pupils beginning to understand how a number line works. One task shows a 0-20 number line and has space to write a number sentence below (addition, but can be adapted for subtraction). This task is worth laminating and then can be used over and over with a whiteboard pen. The other two tasks require pupils to cut out boxes containing shapes, then stick them to the correct place on the number line (0-10). The easier version has arrows to help; the harder version has just a choice of empty boxes. These two sheets have two different questions on each sheet.
