The number representation of relative position is challenging for young students because it uses abstract symbols (numerals) rather than quantity representation. Hip Hop Hippos introduces the relative position of numbers 1 to 10.
These whole-class activities provide students with the opportunity to:
listen to a story about the relative position of numbers 1 to 10
use materials to act out the story
use the Teaching Tool to act out the story
identify numbers that are before, after, and between the numbers 1 to 10
