Subject: Mathematics
Title: Further Investigating Greater Than, Less Than, and Equal To     
Description: Students build upon their understanding of greater than, less than, and equal to by observing quantity and making comparison using varied instructional materials. The fish cut-out, with its mouth open, represents the greater than or less than symbol; the clam cut-out represents the equal to symbol. Using fish lips as a transition point, children will apply their understanding of greater, less, and equal to the standard symbols as the teacher introduces symbolic notation at an developmentally appropriate level.
