This "secret message" activity will amuse your students and teach them about comparing and ordering decimals.
Directions are printed at the top: In each row, determine which set of three decimals numbers are listed from least to greatest. Circle the letter next to the set that is arranged from least to greatest. The first one has been completed for you.
At the end, read the message from top to bottom. It reads, "One place at a time" (The other letters spell "Line up the points").
These 15 problems all involve arranging 3 different positive or negative decimals, including tenths, hundredths, and thousandths.
And all you have to do is copy it! The rest of the prep is all done for you.
