I try to incorporate more than one skill into an activity AND differentiate the activity for multiple levels of students. This activity/worksheet does both.
This “Comparing Numbers” activity can be used to practice many different math skills depending on the cards students use. Instead of just comparing numerals, the teacher can provide students with cards with a variety of numerical representations such as cards with tallies, money, five/ten/twenty frames, dot patterns, dominoes, base ten blocks, finger patterns, arrays, groups of objects, and much more. Most teachers have some sets of cards with various numerical representations to use BUT…
… for some really cool cards to use, check out our:
1. Teacher Toolkit at http://www.flipflopmath.com/ff1100.html which has 550 playing cards to use with this activity
2. Multiplication Game Decks at http://www.flipflopmath.com/ff1700.html which have individual decks for the multiplication facts x1 – x9 which includes cards with arrays, groups of objects, the multiplication expression, and the product
