There are 2 sets of cards. One set is addition 1 – 10. The other set is 11 – 18. You can use 1 set or use both.
Give each child 5 frog cards. Put the gator cards in the middle of the table.
The children will add the numbers to find the sum. I have included number lines to use if needed.
They will compare the sums of both equations and place the correct gator in the middle of the card to show less than or greater than.
After the children’s work has been checked, they can record their information on the recording sheet.
Children can swap cards with another child and repeat.
Place the frog cards in a pocket chart. Place the gator cards at the bottom of the pocket chart.
Two children will come to the pocket chart. Each child will solve one equation and give the sum. The two children will decide which gator needs to go in the middle to show more and less.
