Our Comparing Larger Whole Numbers lesson plan builds number sense as students explore how to compare whole numbers using place value up to the millions. Students are asked to practice with place values charts to compare numbers. Students are also asked to work collaboratively in a group activity in which each student is assigned a large number and has to compare that number to every other students’ number, checking their work with each other student as they go.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare whole numbers using place value up to the millions.
