Les Nombres Entiers - The Integers go to the Movies!
We're beginning your study of integers: "positive and negative whole numbers including zero." It would be a good idea to add this definition to Ellie's Math Dictionary. Take a minute to go over there --> in the sidebar and look up the word "integer" in the math dictionaries. I'll wait . . . . . .
Did you find it? Yes? Good! Is there anything else you want to add to your Math Dictionary now? If yes, go ahead and do it, I'll wait . . . . . .
Done? Excellent! Since we're just getting started I thought it might be fun to go to the movies! ;-)
Remember this: Mathematics is the Science of Patterns!
As you watch the movies and try to answer the questions before the answer is given, remember that Mathematics is the Science of Patterns! Look for the patterns. ;-)

Answer this question in the comments to this post:
The last movie talks about numbers that are "opposites." I call them "zero pairs." Why do I do that? -- Watch the movie before you answer this question. ;-)
I'll have more for you here soon.
