These Compare and Order Whole Numbers Place Value Task Cards align with the following Common Core
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and
expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols
to record the results of comparisons.
This is a set of 24 Compare and Order Whole Number Task Cards. Each task card asks students to compare whole numbers to the hundred thousands place value as greater than, less than, or equal to. It also asks students to order fractions from either greatest to least or least to greatest. In addition, I have also created 8 cards that have students read and interpret a chart and then compare or order the information. The challenge cards ask students not only to answer the problem, but to explain and justify their thinking. The strategy cards help struggling students by providing examples to coach them into understanding and to facilitate their learning. These cards are also differentiated for diverse learners; half of the problems are in
a multiple-choice format to provide support for learners and prepare for end of grade tests while half of the problems are open-ended short answer so the teacher can monitor and analyze student thinking.
This set includes: 8 comparing cards, 8 ordering cards, 8 chart interpretation & comparing/ordering cards, 2 challenge cards, 2 strategy cards for scaffolding, an accountability sheet, and an answer key.
Task cards can be used in small group instruction, as a center activity, or for your fast finishers. In my classroom, my students each have a task card journal. They glue in the recording sheet to their notebook,
and then when they have completed a set and are ready for me to check it, they turn it into the task card tray. I also have a box for task cards that we have already introduced. Students work on them when they finish an assessment, or if they are fast finishers.
These cards print great on any colored cardstock. I would recommend laminating them for longer use!
