Reflection: Station Rotation Who Has More? - Section 4: Game Time!

 

After teaching this lesson, I decided to put this game into learning stations.

This is a great game to use in centers and stations! I ended up putting this game in my Station Rotation. It is a great way for students to keep practicing great partner habits: taking turns, cooperating, winning, losing, etc. Partnering helps kids learn how to collaborate, which is a key part of the Common Core.

While students are practicing these good partner habits, they are also continuously practicing comparing numbers. To up the rigor on this activity, you can also have students include an equation that matches the comparison.
