Week 13 Module 3 Lesson 4-7
Students can compare objects to linking cube towers to see which are longer/shorter/the same.
The building of number towers will prepare them for future comparison of the quantities of numbers and understand why we say this number is bigger than that number.
We also start to practice counting to 100: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RNFE4690fk
Week 12 Module 2 Lesson 9 & Module 3 Lesson 1-3
Students can compare longer than/taller than and shorter than.
