This article is intended for students – as hands-on play with integers by extending the number line and combining it with coloured counters. For this activity, rectangular dot sheets are better than square grid sheets since the dots can be joined by horizontal lines to form number lines and will not get mixed up with existing lines. We also recommend a sketch pen/crayon/colour pencil of two contrasting colours to draw the counters.
