Rabbit Jumps Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a subtraction activity that presents a series of single-digit subtraction problems to be solved. Each problem has a starting number of 15 or less from which a smaller number is to be subtracted. Accompanying each subtraction problem is a visual aid: a number line ranging from 0 to 20, which includes a cute bunny graphic that appears to “hop” along the number line to help visualize the subtraction process. The worksheet provides spaces for students to write the answers and a section at the bottom for them to express how they felt about completing the activity using smiley face emoticons.

The worksheet is teaching students to use number lines as a tool for solving subtraction problems, a method that can improve their understanding of number sequences and the concept of taking away. It encourages the development of mental arithmetic skills by providing a visual representation of the subtraction process, which can be particularly helpful for visual learners. By engaging with this worksheet, students practice counting backwards in a fun and interactive way. Additionally, the self-assessment section at the bottom of the page is designed to help students reflect on their feelings about their work, fostering emotional intelligence and self-awareness in their learning journey.
