Greater Than, Less Than or Equal - Free and Simple Card Game

Kids love card games- and so do I!  

Here's a simple game to work with inequalities/compare numbers.  Kids just pick two cards, write the numbers in the boxes and fill in the <, > or = sign.  Sometimes the simplest games are the most fun!

Simple variations:
Play with dice - Have kids counts the dots and write the numbers
Use a set of 1 - 100 cards for more advanced students 

Click here to download this free game from my Teachers pay Teachers shop.  

Enjoy!         :) Anne Gardner (NBCT)

My son, Keith, is a computer science major.  He just created an iPad app based on this idea.  If you'd like to check it out, click here
