Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.

Big Idea:
Our first class survey is about our favorite animals. After graphing the results of this survey, the students will work with the classmates at their table to survey their favorite sports.

Big Idea:
Who's Got Spots? is a book about students with the chicken pox. It shows examples of how we can gather and organize data. The students will then work with the classmates at their table to survey number of vowels in their names.

Big Idea:
Greedy Gordy is back, helping students compare numerals. This interactive lesson gives the students plenty of opportunity to practice comparing numbers using the vocabulary of greater than, less than and equal.

Big Idea:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a story about a caterpillar that eats different things on different days. Students will use their graphing skills to organize what he ate on a graph.

Big Idea:
Rooster Off to See the World is a story about a rooster and his friends who go off to see the world. Students will use their graphing skills to organize the animals on a graph.

Big Idea:
By sorting objects and pictures and representing them on a graph, students learn to create an abstract representation of a collection of objects that can be used to answer quantitative and comparison questions about the collection.

Big Idea:
By sorting color tiles and representing them on a graph, students learn to create an abstract representation of a collection of objects that can be used to answer quantitative and comparison questions about the collection.

Big Idea:
More is a fairly easy concept for children to understand. They know what it means to want more. This lesson gives students a framework for comparing groups of items.

Big Idea:
More is a fairly easy concept for children to understand. Less is a little more challenging. This lesson will help build a foundational understanding of the concept of less.

Big Idea:
Students do well with the concept of more. Less is somewhat more challenging. This lesson pushes the students further by combing both concepts and also adding the concept of equal.

Big Idea:
Comparing the number of objects in two groups using one to one correspondence is a foundational skill that students will build on as they begin to compare numbers. This lesson also introduce a key vocabulary term- equal.

Big Idea:
Sorting is a skill that is not only used in math. This cross-curriculum connection combines math and science in a fun floating and sinking activity.
