How to Introduce Negative Numbers Easy and Fun

Today,we had to return a too small violin to the violin shop 45 minutes away. A sign on the small shop said, “Closed for emergency.” Of course it would say that. So we turned around and came home. On the drive my 4 year old says. “I don’t feel well. Can we go home and play math with negatives? I like those.” I am reading Internal Drive Theory, so my heart was all aflutter.¬†We introduced negative numbers over the weekend. This is part one. Part two needs editing. This was so easy. And we had fun. You don’t see the previous 5 or 6 holes that were dug and the sand that flew in every direction.
