Working with Numbers: Ordering Integers

Year 6


SKU: M6IL10054

This lesson starts by challenging children to order a mixture of positive and negative numbers. It then goes on to challenge children to calculate intervals across zero by finding the difference between a positive and negative number, using number lines to support them and notation such as 14 - (-35) = 49 to record their calculations. Differentiated board games for the main activity will make these tricky concepts feel like child’s play, or alternatively they can go on a fact hunt to find information to answer questions in the context of temperatures around the world.
