This NEW Gator Swamp Chomp uses different number forms (digits, tallies, base ten, and word form) while students compare numbers using greater than and less than. This 34-slide kit offers:
* teaching points in the beginning
* examples for students
* math vocabulary words to know
* then loads of fun "playing" while they practice the common core math skill of comparing numbers using greater than and less than symbols
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. This file compares two-digit and three-digit numbers.
GREAT companion piece to my Gator Swamp Chomp - the original
which compares just the number forms of 1, 2, and 3-digit numbers.
Such fun... and SO chompin' effective!
