Number line games

We had two fun number line games.
In our first game, we had to line up in the right order so our numbers made a number line.
Then teacher asked a child not on the number line to (for example) 
"Swap with the person holding the number BEFORE the number 8" or
"Swap with the person holding the number AFTER the number 3" or
"Swap with the person holding the number BETWEEN the numbers 5 and 7"
Our number line kept on changing people which was fun.
Our next game was a jumping guessing game.
One child started on the number line on the number that the teacher called out.
Then teacher told us how far that child would jump
(for example, start on 1 and take 3 jumps)
We all had to guess where that child would land.
Sometimes we got it right and were very pleased with ourselves.
Teacher had fun watching out to see do we make our numbers in the right way.
