Gator Swamp Chomp will help your mathematicians to master the concept of greater than, less than - and leave them begging for more! This 35-slide kit offers teaching points in the beginning, examples for students, math vocabulary words to know, and then loads of fun "playing" while they practice the common core math skill of comparing numbers using greater than and less than symbols.
This product compares the number 1-10, and compares number form, word form, and base 10.
After enjoying the introduction and "teaching points" of the lesson, students will love dragging up the hungry gators to CHOMP on the biggest number... be sure to have them read the number sentence out loud as they take their turns.
Scaffolded curriculum design provides more support in the beginning, and then gradually increases level of difficulty as the game play continues.
Such fun... and SO effective!

which has the same gator chompin' fun, only this time we're comparing different number forms (digits, tallies, base ten, word form). Makes a great companion piece to the original Gator Swamp Chomp!
