**Description:** American Football is a game of positive and negative yards. This game simulates this experience. It shows students where negatives exist in real life (America’s favorite sport) and helps them to practice and further realize the rule for adding integers of different signs. Students will utilize the concepts of Integers, Integer Addition, and Moving Integers on a number line to accomplish this.

Just want to say how successful these lessons are proving in my Opportunity Class (gifted class) of Year 5 students. I am also sharing with our Year 6 teachers. Just about to convert your American football game into an Australian equivalent. Keep the lessons coming!!

So awesome to hear! I will keep churning them out as long as you keep using them 😉
