You may find this resource useful if:
a) your students, like so many others, cannot for the life of them remember the difference between the inequality symbols
b) you have no idea which of your students would rather own a pet unicorn rather than a pet dragon
Perfect for the back-to-school season or as an intro/review to your lessons on inequalities, this product employs the beloved "Would your rather...?" format to reinforce the difference between the greater than and less than symbols. Asked to choose which of two activities they prefer, your kiddos will decide which way to face the symbol to represent MORE. My students love a booklet stapled three times down the side, and this resource includes enough pages for you to make a big ol' booklet or use the pages separately as you wish. See below for detailed page descriptions! (This also would be a great desk display at open house for parents to peruse while they wait to talk to you!)
This activity is best served with a side of chatter. Let the students talk their way through it so they can get to know one another while they get to know the inequality symbols. Each set of questions also includes a space for students to pick a comparison and write why they chose what they did.
Included in this 15-page resource:
1) Cover page
2) Student booklet cover
3-4) Would you rather? "Lifestyle" questions
5-6) Would you rather...? "In My Imagination" questions
7-8) Would you rather...? "Adventures and Wonders" questions
9) Detailed student instructions (explains the symbols in math and in the activity)
10) Coloring page -students pick four comparisons to illustrate
11-13) Class data activity - three versions (Students pick one comparison and survey classmates. Version 1 - you pick the number of students to survey and have the students write it in - students make a bar graph. Version 2 - students survey ten classmates and create a pie graph. Version 3 - students make a pie graph but you tell them how many people to survey.)
