THE FIFTH GREAT STORY: The Story of Numbers

The fifth great story covers the evolution of numbers and the origin of zero.  It's a HUGE story that can be told in several sittings if you're working with Lower Elementary children.  I recommend breaking it down into three separate sections if necessary:

1. Malayan/Babylonian/Egyptian

2. Greek/Roman

3. Hindu-Arabic and Zero

Below, you'll find the charts in pdf format.  You can print them out on card stock or create your own.
