This is a comparing numbers center game. This game is meant for independent or partner practice after comparing has already been taught. It is a great way to get your students comparing numbers more independently. There are three game options. It has comparing two-digit and three-digit numbers. It could also be used as a math game for students to play at the end of independent practice.
Game Option #1
Print the first page off on cardstock or other colored paper and laminate. Have students roll dice to come up with two numbers and then take turns drawing in the correct symbol (<,>,=). Use an expo marker so students can erase their work and reuse. The top half of the page is for two-digit numbers and the bottom half is for three-digit numbers. You could cut to separate and have some students do two-digit and some do three-digit numbers. Make several of these and you can have more student pairs working at once.
Game Option #2
This is the same game as above, but with printed student worksheets to keep track of student work. Have the students roll the dice to come up with either a two or three-digit number. Then use the symbols <,>,= to compare. On the back of the sheet students come up with their own two or three digit addition and subtraction problem. Have students show their work. The benefit of this is that students have a paper to turn in.
Game Option #3
This is a more paper efficient student work sheet for the game option #2. This does not include the addition and subtraction review. Print the papers back to back. The two-digit numbers will be on the front and the three-digits will be on the back.
