Five hands on math center activities to work on comparing numbers to 1,000! With student directions, recording sheets, and lots of activity cards! 

I used Math Tubs in my classroom as my form of Morning Work- students came into the classroom, got themselves situated, and then began their Math Tub with their table team. If you were to walk into my classroom during this time, you would see kids spread around the classroom on the floor or at tables, talking and working away on these. I always loved this time in our classroom because everyone was engaged, I was able to get situated and deal with anything I needed to first thing in the am {attendance, collecting paperwork, parens at the door, etc}, students enjoyed doing the hands on work, they loved being able to chit chat while they worked first thing in the morning, I was able to get some legit review math skills in, AND they never got bored because I switched the tubs daily. In other words, I would prep five tubs (plus one day was computer time), and then just rotate the tubs around the tables each morning. These lasted me about two weeks since the tubs would revisit each table the follow week. Does this make sense....? 

Tubs are from Dollar Tree! Beautiful labels are from Amy Groesbeck

Math Tub time!!!

Anyways.... here are the five Comparing Numbers to 1,000 tubs! 

Tub 1: Students place sets of four numbers in order from least to greatest. This tub focuses on comparing the hundreds place.

Tub 2: Students group numbers cards according to whether they are greater than, less than, or equal to 500. The number cards include numbers represented with words, in standard form, and base ten blocks.

Tub 3: Students create a number sentence using the words 'greater than," "less than," and "equal to." This tub gives students experience comparing numbers based on the hundreds, tens, AND ones place.

  13. Can you tell an old teacher in the bunch? I pinned it to my Daily 5 Math board, but don't know how to send you a link. My pinterest boards are under my name Sherry Matheson.
    Does that help?
