Hungry Alligator

Bigger Than Early Math Worksheet Free Printable

I still remember my Third Grade teacher, Mrs. Imus, teaching my class the bigger than symbol. She explained the symbol as an alligator’s mouth eating the bigger number, and her drawing of the alligator’s teeth chomping the bigger number is forever ingrained in my head.

So, as I was thinking about what kind of worksheet to share, I thought we could all use a little Hungry Alligator action. I used small numbers (1-9) so even the youngest preschooler can participate in this week’s worksheet!

    • I just gave my youngest (almost 3) this worksheet, and it was all about the alligator teeth. LOL! At least some thinking/learning is going on though, right?

  1. I hope you sent your former teacher a copy of this blog. She would love to hear her lesson being passed on to another generation. What a cute idea she had about alligators!
