Perfect for back to school or an introduction to your inequalities unit, this activity will get your kids talking about what the inequality symbols mean while simultaneously discovering who in the class has fewer than three bathrooms in his house and who can name more than eleven foods that start with the letter P. Some are silly and some are serious, but all of the statements will get your kids talking to each other about themselves and about math!
Two levels are included so you can choose an appropriate level for your class(es): one version with "greater than" and "less than" and the other with those two PLUS "greater than or equal to" and "less than or equal to." (The statements and numbers are all the same; the only difference is whether it uses two symbols or four.)
Detailed student instructions are included for all scenarios (all four symbols and with examples for the words on the left and on the right of each symbol). Simply copy one page or both (depending on which version of the activity you will use) and give to students to reference as they search for classmates who meet the criteria in each inequality.

1) Cover page
