Since we have been using currency in my Grade 5 class. This video inspired me to compare unlike coins to ask which is more or less. I would line up pictures of each coin. This is would be great activity before working with place value.
Which is More or Less?
a) dimes: 10 – 10 – 10 – 10 – 10 – 10
b) quarters: 25 – 25
Change up the types of coins, from more or less move to a number line comparison, then ask how much more or less.
