This is great hands on practice to use with your students when learning to compare numbers. Students will compare two numbers by drawing a quick picture of the number using hundreds, tens and ones and then compare the numbers using place value and telling what place value helped them decide if the number was greater or less than.
This pack includes 4 mats for students to have hands on practice comparing numbers.
Mats that are included:
greater than - comparing tens and ones
less than - comparing tens and ones
greater than - comparing hundreds, tens, and ones
less than - comparing hundreds, tens, and ones
******I have included a VIDEO of one of my students comparing 28 and 27. This will give you an idea of how I use the mats.*******
These mats can be used in small groups as well as whole group.
I slide the mats into dry erase pockets and students use dry erase markers to write on the sleeves.
