This activity pack on ordering whole numbers contains 4 hands-on activities that your students are sure to love. Remediate students' ordering skills with whole numbers before hitting harder concepts such as ordering decimals, fractions, and percents.
Ordering Numbers Study Guide and Skills Practice
This one-page remediation sheet contains fully-explained key concepts and guided-practice problems at the top with straight-forward skill practice problems at the bottom. Use this sheet for a quick review over the skill. A SmartBoard version of this activity is also included in the download.
Line 'Em Up Class Activity
In this fun whole-class activity, each student creates a 5-digit number on an index card. Then everyone forms a line with their numbers out in front of them. The catch is that students must line up in order from least to greatest. A more challenging version of this activity, involving Post-It notes, is also offered in the full teacher directions.
Cut-Order-Paste Activity with SmartBoard Version
Cut-Order-Paste are the steps students will take to complete this activity. They first cut apart 5 numbers for each of the 6 questions. Students must then order the numbers from least to greatest, and then paste them into the correct order on their activity sheets. A SmartBoard version of this activity is also included, turning the 'cut' and 'paste' components into a 'drag-and-drop' activity.
Order Up! Price Ordering Activity
Students will enjoy some fine dining at the world's most expensive restaurant. Using information from the restaurant's menu, students will write the entire list of menu items in order from least to greatest cost according to their prices. While students won't get to eat the delectable food mentioned, they will get some great practice in ordering larger numbers.
All available answer keys are printed immediately after each student activity. These activities are fun, student tested and approved, and and simple to use, just Print-and-Go!
