More than, less than, equal to

Cut out the 3 signs for more than >, less than <, equal to = from coloured card and get started (alternatively use flash cards with these signs if you have them).

Place two different amounts of Flockmen on the table (or on a rug, or a tray), in two groups with a free space in between. Explain to your child the meaning of each sign and start using them. Begin with one Flockmen on one side and 4 on the other (easy level). Let your child set up the Flockmen for the next go. The visual aspect of this game can aid children’s understanding of this math concept.
