This ordering and comparing of numbers to 100,000 activity (TEK 3.2D) is very diverse and can be used as a whole group activity, for small group instruction, tutoring, centers or anchor stations. It allows for differentiated instruction as well.
Assembly Directions: I choose to print and laminate every directions sheet, answer sheet, and numbers. There are two ways to play this game.
Option 1 Directions: I have played this game two ways. Option 1. I have taken the 5 different direction cards and put one at each table. I then found the matching QR Code answer sheet and put it along with any materials the students would need at the table. Students then picked practice putting the cards in order from least to greatest or greatest to least. I make them record their answers on their recording sheets and then they can check their answers using the QR codes. The students then go to another table and practice with the next set of numbers. This can be done in one day or a rotation over a couple of days.
Option 2 Directions: Option 2 is where the students focus on one set of number cards. I will pick one set of cards (lets say its Dogs) the students will then take the cards recording sheet and put the cards in order from greatest to least then least to greatest. They will record their answers on the recording sheet and then check them with the QR codes. This is a great tool for small group or centers. You could even place all sets of cards and put the same direction card (Order from Least to greatest) and the students will practice ordering numbers from least to greatest 5 different times.
