Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about how a number line can represent the highest and lowest elevations in the world.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Where is sea level on your number line?
  • Where are elevations above sea level on your number line?
  • Where are elevations below sea level on your number line?
  • How did you know where to place each elevation on your number line?
  • Compare this number line to number lines you have worked with in the past. How are they alike? How are they different?
