This lesson along with 5 others and a unit test are included in the Whole Number Place Value Unit Bundle
This individual product includes a lesson with teacher and student notes, handouts, and answer keys. A PowerPoint version of the lesson is also included for easier projection.
This lesson covers information and strategies for comparing and ordering whole numbers.
This lesson reflects content from fourth grade standards but I find it helpful to include more instruction in this area before I am able to proceed with higher-level place value instruction.
Place value knowledge is an important prerequisite to understanding upper-elementary mathematics. This lesson is a building block for standard 5.NBT.1, 5.NBT.2, and 5.NBT.3. It is a review of 4.NBT.1, 4.NBT.2, and 4.NBT.3.
You can use a document camera or similar device to project these notes onto the board. Alternatively, you may want to write or type the notes onto the board. A PowerPoint version is included in this product as well that can be displayed and filled in by typing into the file or writing on an interactive whiteboard. Students should copy these notes or follow along on a printed copy.
Each teacher note page features notes before and after problem solving. Space for additional teaching notes is included on each page.
Three handouts are included with answer keys. These can be used as quizzes or tests if you wish.
