**Title:** Who is the Greatest?

**Description:**
Students will gain more conceptual understanding of comparing 3-digit numbers. They will build numbers using base ten blocks and a hundreds chart and work with a partner to decide which number is greater. They will be making decisions about which place value to put the digits in to construct the greatest number.
This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] (2) 8: Compare two three-digit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [2-NBT4]

**Subject:**Mathematics (2)

**Title:** Using Sign Language to Write Four-Digit Numbers in Words

**Description:**
In my experience, children love to learn and experiment with sign language. In this lesson, children will learn numbers 1-100 in sign language and will use that knowledge to sign four digit numbers to be written in words.
This lesson plan was created by exemplary Alabama Math Teachers through the AMSTI project.

**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.
**Standard(s): **

[MA2015] (4) 7: Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons. [4-NBT2]
