Treasure Number Lines- Series Overview

Get the pirate to the treasure using number lines! This is the general theme of the Treasure Number Line Series. Focusing on addition, some sets focus on adding double digits, others hundreds or tens, and one set is about transitioning to larger jumps on the number line. Finally, a video and worksheet set focuses on finding where the answer is on a number line when the addition equation has variables in different locations. A few of the sets have freebies which you will find below as well.

Adding Tens, Double Digit Addition, Double Digit Addition Above 100, and Adding Hundreds are sets that include 2 worksheets that are leveled in the three ways mentioned below.

♦ The first worksheet has all number line jumps labeled with the steps of the problems. This is for your struggling students who need scaffolded support before letting them loose with number lines.

♦ The second worksheet has the number line jumps drawn in but the math is up to the students. This is designed for your students to visually see the distance of each jump and also to show how the addend is split into smaller pieces to add in total.

♦ The third worksheet has the number lines and the problems, but students will draw the number line jumps themselves as well as solve each partial sum to find the total answer.

You can also use all three to teach progression of number lines.

Adding By Tens- Practice decomposing an addend into the correct amount of tens and add on the number line to find the answer.

Double Digit Addition- This set has 2 leveled worksheets. The answers will stay under the 100 mark.

Double Digit Addition Above 100- This set works on Double Digit Addition with the answers crossing the 100 mark.

Adding Hundreds- The addends are separated by place value to add in partial sums on the number line.

Transitioning to Larger Jumps on the Number Line -This set features 5 worksheet that teaches in progression how to move from adding individual jumps of tens on the number line to combining to make larger jumps of tens, such as 20s or 30s etc. The addend is decomposed by 10s and the students are guided to practice combining to add those groups of tens to find the answer to the addition equation.

♦ 3 worksheets focus on combining tens from the addend into larger jumps in order to add more efficiently on the number line.

♦ 2 worksheets focus on decomposing or breaking apart the addend into larger jumps of tens and then using those pieces to add on the number line.

Video Set

Treasure Number Lines- Where is the Answer on a Number Line? -This video and worksheet set has students using number lines to solve equations with variables missing at the beginning, middle, and end of the equations. The video is geared towards students and explains how to set up a number line for each equation type and where the answer will be after solving. With the video comes three worksheets to practice each type of equation. Read more about it on my blog post to see examples and specifics from the video.


Double Digit Addition Bundle- This small bundle combines the Double Digit Addition and the Double Digit Addition Above 100 together. It also includes a blank sheet to write in your own equations for extra practice.

Treasure Number Lines Big Bundle- 5 sets are combined in this big bundle. It does not include the video set.


Adding Tens- A single page freebie with jumps.

Double Digit Addition- A single page freebie with problems and blank number lines to complete the problems.

Adding Hundreds- A single page freebie with problems and blank number lines to complete the problems.
