HI! I need a good lesson on Comparing Two-Digit Numbers. I might have my kids make actual greater than/less than signs that look like alligators before the lesson...I was thinking of having partners pull number cards and arranging their alligators the proper way and checking each other's work.

I just taught this lesson this week. To start with I divided up a deck of cards into A-10, with Aces equal to one. I have them work in pairs and play war with the greatest number winning first hand and the least winning second hand. It was a great start to comparing numbers. I love your aligator idea and might do the same.
