Ever wondered how to teach integers, opposites, and absolute values in an engaging way to your 6th grade students?

In this lesson plan, students will learn about and identify integers, opposites, and absolute values and their real-life applications. Then, students will apply their skills to compare and order integers, opposites, absolute values using inequality statements. Then, they will plot integers and rational numbers on the number line diagrams. Through artistic, interactive guided notes, a check for understanding, and a color by number activity, students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the topic.

The lesson culminates with a real-life example that explores how elevation during hiking (above, at, below sea levels) can be represented by integers.
