This comparing numbers activity is perfect to use during the month of December. This set includes a mat, 3 Santas holding greater than, less than, and equal to signs, 2 sets of cards 0 – 20, and a recording sheet.
One mat can be used with 2 partners, or individually. Have students place one set of cards face down in one of the Santa frames on the mat and the other set on the other Santa frame. He or she will turn the top card face up on each deck. Then he or she can use the provided candy pieces as manipulatives (if needed) or you can provide actual pieces of wrapped candy to help them determine if the first number is greater than, less than, or equal to the second number. Then he or she will place the Santa holding the appropriate sign between the two decks of cards. Next, he or she will write the equation on the recording sheet. Finally, he or she
will put the cards on the bottom of the deck, turn the next cards over and the 2nd player will take his or her turn.
