PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This game is allowing students to explore the flexibility within numbers in a fun and engaging way. Students are not only able to tell each other what is greater than/less than, but able to visually see how numbers being greater than/less than each other works! Students' number sense will be strengthened become more solid as a whole when they understand what the terms 'greater than, less than' mean.

I always have students prove it to me, wanting them to understand that ‘greater than’ numbers are in front and ‘less than’ numbers are behind.

MATERIALS NEEDED: number lines (provided in packet), 1 dice per group, cubes/teddy bears/etc. for game pieces - 2 per player, greater than/less than cards (provided in packet).

HOW TO PLAY: As beginners, I give students 2 copies of each cards 1 – 6 of both greater than and less than. There are also cards 7 - 12 provided as a differentiation tool. One person rolls the dice and everybody points to that number on the number line, placing one of their game pieces on it. Once everyone has put a game piece on the number that was rolled, each person draws a card from their pile. Depending on how the cards are mixed, each person will draw a different card. They will then place their second game piece on the number that would solve the card drawn. Enjoy and have fun!
