Number Sense


In this WebQuest you will be identifying, comparing, and ordering numbers. This can be done by putting numbers in order from smallest to largest, identifying greater than, less than, or equal to. Also this can be done by identifying place value.


First you need to identify weather 23.46 is >,<,= to 23.87.

Second you need to name the place value of the 4 in 23.46.

Third you need to name the place value of the 7 in 23.87.


First you will go to this website and play two game from each topic. (Comparing Numbers, Ordering Numbers) These games will help you get an idea of what you are learning and help you master the concept.

Next find a partner and come get number cards and identify the place value listed on the worksheet.

Example: 28.72 <,>,= 32.32 

Answers: <, Tenths, Hundredths


After everyone has finished the WebQuest we will come together and share our cards together. Every group will present two cards (one each person) and answer the questions with it.


After the class activity I will separate the class into two halves and have a competition battle on the board where one person will come up from each group. They will have to answer the question the quickest to earn the point. Most points at the end of the game wins and will earn a prize.
