We need your good jumping skills today for our addition lesson. Are you up for it? You are going to be a human frog! Ribbit!

1. Print the Frog Printable found in Downloadable Resources in the right-hand sidebar.
2. Cut out the frogs.
3. Bring them outside, along with sidewalk chalk.
4. With the help of your parent or teacher, make a large number line, from 0-10, that you can walk on. Here is an example of a number line you can draw:

1. Now, try out a problem: 2 frogs + 4 frogs = ___ frogs.
2. The problem starts with 2 frogs, so put 2 frogs on the number line, one on the 1, and one on the 2.
3. Now, you are going to hold the rest of the frogs and jump forward 4 spots, putting a frog down at each number.
