## Complete the Number Line to Fill in the Pumpkin Patch!

Farmer Brown needs some help filling in the rows in his pumpkin patch! Get your students in on the fun and boost their mathematical confidence and skill with a fun interactive number-line-building activity from Teach Starter.

This fun interactive activity will help your students visualize and determine the location of different numbers along the number line. This activity requires students to click, drag, and drop the numbered pumpkins into correctly marked spaces along the number line.

## How Do Number Lines Help Improve Math Skills?

Number lines can improve math skills in several ways:

• Number lines provide a visual representation of numbers, making it easier for students to understand counting, addition, and subtraction. Seeing the numbers in a spatial arrangement can help students better understand the relationships between numbers.
• Number lines can also help students with estimation skills. By placing a number on a number line, students can see the distance between that number and other numbers. This can help them make estimates when doing mental arithmetic or solving problems.
• Number lines can be beneficial when working with fractions. By dividing a number line into equal parts, students can visualize fractions and understand their relationships to other fractions and whole numbers.
• Number lines can also help students with operations such as multiplication and division. For example, multiplying by a whole number can be visualized as repeatedly jumping along the number line by the value of the multiplier.
