Hungry Dino Math!

We have so much catching up to do since the last post about classroom goodies that can be made from Dollar Store finds.  And yes, these dinosaur grabbers were actually purchased from Dollar Tree for ONE DOLLAR!!!!  Try to find them in the kids section as quickly as you can.  These grabbers can also be found in toy stores for five dollars or less too.

Hungry Dino Greater Than and Less Than Game

This game is for two players.  Each student gets a grabber (or substitute with plastic spoons).  Place blocks inside of a plastic container.  Both students get 20 seconds to place as many blocks as possible into their own plastic containers (sanitized Wendy's baked potato containers were used here).  They play at the same time using a timer.

After the twenty seconds, the students determine who has greater or less than and write it onto a recording sheet using the proper symbols.


  1. When in class did you play this, Small group or whole class? Looks like a lot of fun!

  2. This is a small group activity. Thanks for asking :)
