Is there something wrong with the number sequence below? If so, how would you fix it?

1 2 3 4 5 7 6 8 9 10

You know how to count from one to ten, but there was something wrong with the number sequence you saw at the beginning of the lesson.

Were you able to figure out what it was? Here it is again:

1 2 3 4 5 7 6 8 9 10

You may have noticed that 6 and 7 switched spots! That's not where they go! When you count, you count from 1 to 10 in the same order every time. Look at how the number sequence is written below. This number sequence is written correctly. Read the numbers aloud with your parent or teacher:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Take a look at another number sequence. What is wrong with this one? Tell your parent or teacher:

1 2 4 5 7 6 8 9 10

Did you say the 3 is missing from the number sequence? Great job! The number sequence has been fixed below. The 3 is where it is supposed to be:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Take a look at three more examples below. Tell your parent or teacher what is wrong with each number sequence:

1 2 3 5 4 6 7 8 9 10

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 10

1 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 10

In the first number sequence, the 4 and 5 are switched. In the second number sequence, the 9 is missing. In the third number sequence, the 6 is missing. Were you able to find all the mistakes?

Great work!

In the Got It? section, you will play some number-sequencing games!
