## Lesson: Ordering Greater Numbers

Developing the Concept

With a solid foundation in place value, students can proceed to ordering greater numbers.

**Materials**: transparency made from Learning Tool 4 in the *Learning Tools Folder*

**Preparation**: Write the value of each place on Learning Tool 4 and then make a transparency.

**Prerequisite Skills and Background**: Students should know place value to hundred thousands and know how to order numbers through hundreds.

Write 8,901; 354,068; and 92,551 on the place-value chart.

**Wrap-Up and Assessment Hints**

Provide students with ample opportunity to order greater numbers that have a different number of places. Reinforce the need to start with the greatest place. Use the questioning strategies in this lesson to assess students' understanding of the concept.
