Number Line Scoot (2–3)

Stage 1: Twos, Fives, and Tens

Narrative

Students take turns spinning a spinner and moving their cube that interval on one of the shared number lines. Students may use their whole spin on one number line or split it between multiple number lines. Each time a cube lands exactly on the last tick mark of one of the number lines, the player who moved it keeps the cube and puts a new cube on zero on that number line. The first player to collect five cubes wins.

Each group of 2 needs 12 centimeter cubes.

Stage 2: Halves, Thirds and Fourths

Narrative

Students take turns rolling a number cube and using the number as a numerator in a fraction with a denominator of 2, 3, or 4. Students move their centimeter cube that interval on one of the shared number lines. Each time a cube lands exactly on the last tick mark of one of the number lines, the player who moved it keeps the cube and puts a new cube on zero on that number line. The first player to collect five cubes wins.
