Comparing numbers is such a great way to develop number sense. Students need to identify larger and smaller numbers or quantities. With this easy to set up center, students can have fun modeling and comparing numbers!
To prepare center: Make copies of recording page per student. Laminate and cut apart cards.. Copy comparing symbols onto cardstock or other sturdy paper and cut out. Place everything in folder with recording pages at math centers.
To play: Draw two cards. Model the numbers using blocks or cubes. Lay out on the mat. Compare the totals. Record your answers.
*PLEASE NOTE: This center can be found bundled in my September/Back to School Beginning Place Value Math Centers product.
All center materials in black and white, too!
This math center is designed to complement my MATH! Curriculum for first grade. You can find it HERE.
