Classifying Rational Numbers

In 5th grade TAG math we are learning about Rational Numbers.  We started by discussing the different types of numbers and creating an organizer in their notebook, so we were able to see the different classifications and how a number could belong to more than one group.

To deepen the definitions, we did "Always, Sometimes, Never" by rolling dice to fill in the blanks with Rational, Natural, Whole, and Integers, and Irrational Numbers.  

Ex:  A(n) Integer is a(n) Natural Number.  

We then sorted several types of Real Numbers into an big organizer on the floor.  It was great to see the teamwork and discussions as they discovered where the numbers belonged.
