Our Introduction to Whole Number Comparison lesson plan exposes students to new number comparison symbols and vocabulary. Students are asked to use their creativity to create “alligators” to apply their understanding of using symbols when comparing whole numbers, as well as strengthen critical thinking. Students are also asked to complete practice problems that demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to compare numbers into the hundreds place.
