Lesson Plan Description

This fully scripted, Kindergarten half day lesson plan is broken down into 2 separate segments (30-60 minutes each). These lessons address Measurement and Data: directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/ “less of” the attribute and describe the difference (K.MD.2). Your students will get an introduction to comparing numbers and identifying which is greater than or less than. They will learn how to appropriately use the greater than and less than symbols by practicing comparing numbers as a whole class and with a partner. You may use the exit slip as an optional assessment component to check for understanding. Finally, have your students play the game “Who is Greater?” to further practice the skill of comparing two numbers.

  • Segment 1:  Students will count objects and determine what group has more or less. They will practice using the terms “greater than” and “less than” when comparing two numbers and create and use the greater than and less than symbol when comparing two numbers.
  • Segment 2: Students will use the terms “greater than” and “less than” when comparing two numbers.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
