Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies

Learning Targets:

I can say which group has more by matching or counting the number of objects in both groups.

I can say which group has less by matching or counting the number of objects in both groups.

I can say when groups are equal by matching or counting.

Students may need to line up the objects and compare them to see which set has more. This is a prerequisite to being able to look at the numerals and know which set is greater. Students are more comfortable when working with more as opposed to less. Using a number line or hundreds chart may help them see numbers that are more or less than another number.
