Exploring Decimals: Comparing Decimals
This lesson starts by challenging children to estimate where a given decimal would be placed on a number line, before showing them how number lines can be used to help them compare decimals. They will then move on to ordering sets of numbers with up to two decimal places, and identify numbers that can go between two decimals on a number line. The main activity has a simple game that will get children competing to get the largest number, whilst the alternative activity will have them going ‘beanbag bowling’, using their measurements to compare decimals!
