How to Play:
Mix Double Digit Number Cards up. Use the Double Digit Number Cards to pick a number for the day. Students will focus on the first digit of selected number. For instance the first digit in 58 is 5. Have students circle the selected first digit on the Greater or Less Practice worksheet number line. Review with students which numbers are less or greater than the selected first digit number for the day. Have students randomly choose additional double-digit numbers and determine if the first digit of those numbers is greater or less than the first digit number for the day. For instance, the number 55 is less than 62. Have students write the word greater or less to complete sentence on Greater or Less Practice worksheets. Number line can be used to aid students in selecting appropriate comparison.
I have found it beneficial to focus on comparison using the first digit of numbers. I have found this to be the most effective way to reinforce this concept. This lesson can be modified to include first and second digit comparison at your discretion. This lesson can also be modified to include comparison using greater than > equal = and less than < symbols.
