EJE Integer Soup

East Jones Elementary students in Mrs. Shai Holder and Mrs. Jana Byrd's 6th grade math classes had fun learning about adding and subtracting integers. After a mythical story was read, students used red and yellow chips to represent cold (negative) and (hot) positive numbers. Students used the chips to represent temperature soup in a cauldron. Hopefully this introductory lesson will help them draw a connection to the rules for adding and subtracting integers.
