Why Lesson Planet?
In this whole numbers instructional activity, learners practice comparing the whole numbers by writing the greater, less, or equal to sign. Students then write the numbers using the symbol that means 'is less than' for the next set of problems and 'is greater than' for the following set. Learners then complete two whole number comparison mixed application word problems. Students finish using a table for U.S. Mountain heights to answer the whole number comparison questions.
