Bug Catcher Number Line

This isn’t your average number line. Featuring bugs as manipulatives for counting or marking different spots along the line, this number line is engaging, whimsical, and fun.

Number lines help young students learn the sequence of numbers, model operations, practice skip counting, and more! Yet, without an engaging theme, number lines can be a bit boring.

This interactive number line is versatile and fun. Press the square box in the bottom right-hand corner to choose the spacing between numbers shown on the number line. Scroll the number line using the black strip above it. Then, add bugs to the line by clicking and dragging them above the number line. Make them disappear by dragging them off.

Wondering how to use it? Here are a few ideas for buggy learning:

  • Count each number on the number line by adding a bug at each dash.
  • Model addition problems with two or more addends by using a different type of bug for each addend.
  • Model multiplication and skip counting by alternating types of bugs. For example, to skip count by 3, add 3 ladybugs, then 3 flies, 3 ladybugs, then 3 flies, etc.
