Teach students the basics of using symbols to compare numbers! Using greater than, less than, and equal to symbols to compare numbers is a cinch with this set of 12 practice sheets! The practice sheets build in difficulty and give you a quick and easy framework for teaching this Common Core concept (1.NBT.3).
The pack starts by familiarizing students with the concepts and vocabulary of greater than, less than, and equal. The pack moves on to connect those concepts with the symbols, then to using place value representations (ten frames and blocks) to aid in comparing numbers and finally, comparing two-digit numbers using the symbols alone.
Pack includes 12 practice sheets and 12 answer keys only, no instructional plans! Use to supplement your own Common Core math lesson plans. However, the scaffolding of concepts in the pack could easily be used as a framework for 1-2 weeks worth of math lessons and practice! Use the title/concept in each sheet as a springboard to plan your lessons and other instructional activities.
