Number line? That's for babies!

I know you are thinking what is that crazy frog teacher talking about, right?  Well, when I told my 4th grade students we were going to practice some math with a number line they quickly yelled, squealed, blurted out, said numbers lines are easy, they are for kindergarten babies! Well, out of the 22 students I had only 3 that could claim that number lines were easy.  I was shocked to see how many students actually have difficulty with number lines and whole numbers....I am afraid to see what they do when they have to deal with fractions and number lines.  My students need a lot of practice with number lines so I made a practice sheet to give them and I thought I would share.
