"Lion Them Up" is a play on the words "Line Them Up", meaning number order. There are three activities in this file for teaching and practicing number order in three-digit numbers.
Activity 1--Kinesthetic Group Introduction: the teacher holds up a mini-poster (1 of 5). All children with the matching symbol come to the front of the room and order themselves from least to greatest. Different combinations of posters can be used to increase difficulty.
Activity 2--Independent Practice Worksheets
a) Ordering numbers
b) Making greater than/less than "true" statements using a picture key and number boxes
Activity 3--Lion Craftivity: Students use either dice or spinners to generate 16 sets of 3-digit numbers. The number strips become the lion's mane on their craft.
