This is a two-player game with very little prep! The goal of the game is to have students practice comparing numbers using greater than and less than vocabulary.
Supplies…You will need two different markers (Mini erasers fit great!) and one die. You will also need to print the game board on cardstock. Laminating, or a page protector, is optional but not necessary.
Put the markers at the start line. Player 1 rolls the die and moves forward that many boxes. Then player one reads the sentence in the rectangular box inserting the number he/she landed on. For example if player 1 landed on 12 they would say, “12 is less than 15.” If the statement is TRUE he/she “stays put!” If the statement is FALSE, he/she would “move back 1 space.” If a student landed on 15 and said, “15 is less than 15.” That is false so the player would move back 1 space.
The boxes in the less than symbol say ”____is less than 15.” In the greater than symbol the sentence is “_____is greater than 15.”
The winner is the first player to reach the finish line.
I’ve included a board for numbers to 20 and a board for numbers to 40. You could print them back-to-back to make for easy differentiating or introduce them at different times. I always like to use the same game format with different numbers so I can just give a quick game review, rather than a full game introduction. .
