I created this set of 48 task cards to give my 1-3rd grader math students experience with > < = (greater than, less than, and equal), beyond the normal fill in the blank questions. So this set of differentiated task cards go beyond by using story problems, base ten pictures, etc.
How can I use this product?
I have used task cards as a math center, journal prompts, whole class Scoot game, class discussions, or even assessments. But warning, the advanced task cards require some major perseverance so I wouldn’t recommend them for a Scoot game. For differentiation, your beginners could do cards 1-16, your middle group could do cards 17-32, and your advanced group could do the last set (4 pages).
