The activities in this packet involve children in comparing numbers and sets – all with a Christmas theme.
The 24 picture cards and the 24 number cards can be
- left uncut (4 to a page) and placed in sheet protectors
- cut apart, hole punched and put on a ring for a center using
the recording sheet
- cut apart for a SCOOT or Roam the Room format using the
student recording sheet
The individual picture set/number cards are meant to used as a center or for small group work.
Place the green cards in 1 container and the red in another. (I like to use small Christmas gift bags.) The student draws one card from each bag and places the cards on the mat (red card on the red box, green card on the green box) and then selects the correct symbol (< = >) to compare the two cards.
To vary the activity, you can choose to have students compare numbers/numbers, sets/sets, or numbers/sets.
