Fruit Comparing

We have been busy comparing amounts in pre-k.  I want my students to be able to compare using the words greater than, less than, or equal to.  This Fruit Comparing digital resource is a fun way for students to compare amounts.  Students will work on comparing amounts 1-10.

For this resource you are going to want to make a copy, when prompted (the link to make a copy is found in the FREE download below).  When you make a copy, it will save to your Google Drive.  

After making a copy you will want to make sure you are not viewing in present mode.  You just want the students to have the slides.  They will not be able to manipulate the fruit if you are actually trying to view the slideshow.  

There are two versions of the Fruit Comparing slides.  You can choose which version best meets the needs of your students.  One slide has ten frames on each fruit tree for some organization of counting the fruit.  The other slide does not have the ten frame so students would put the fruit on the trees in more of a scattered arrangement.  

To being, students first click on the spinner.  This will take them to the online 1-10 spinner.  When the screen pops up, students will be prompted to tap the spinner to spin.  If your students are on tablets, they would just tap the screen to spin.  If they are on a laptop or computer, they may need to use the mouse or trackpad to spin.

After tapping the spinner, students see what number it lands on.  In the example below, the spinner landed on  4.

The student would then move that number of apples on the apple tree.  In the example below, the student moved 4 apples on the tree since they spun a 4.

Students then repeat that same process again, but this time they move that many pears on the tree.  In the example below the student spun a 3 so they put 3 pears on the tree.

After students have their apples and pears on the trees, they are ready to compare.  In the example below there are 4 apples and 3 pears.  Some of the following comments could be stated to compare:
*Four apples are greater than three pears.
*Three pears are less than four apples.
*If one more pear was on the tree, they would be equal.
