### Fun Positive and Negative Numbers Hopscotch

Kids love to play Hopscotch! Here's a simple way to turn it into a fun math lesson. Shhhhh! Don't tell the kids it's a math lesson! It's just a NEW Hopscotch Game ..... Great for outdoors ... Great for summer!

First play Hopscotch the usual way then suggest making The Hopscotch showing the numbers Less Than Zero. Add in Zero and the Negative Numbers to your Hopscotch. Now the kids can have TWICE the FUN and learn some new vocabulary!!!

Take turns playing with the Positive Numbers, then play with the Negative Numbers

In an earlier post, I wrote about a really cute book that teaches young kids about positive and negative numbers, you can read that post here.

Have fun this summer! :)
