After I have taught the concept of comparing, I expand upon it by teaching my students how to place decimals in order from greatest to least and least to greatest. If the students have a good grasp of comparing decimals, then this concept can be taught fairly quickly. I spend a few minutes introducing the concept and then go directly into having the students place 4-5 decimals in order following the same basic rules that I set forth for comparing decimals. This can be done in many ways, but I choose to place my students into groups of 3-4 students and provide them with a set of cards to place in a certain order. They are instructed to follow the rules for comparing and work together to complete the set. By placing the students in groups I am providing the students the opportunity to learn from their peers while freeing myself up to walk around and work with struggling groups. After the students complete several packs of cards together, I then provide them with an Ordering Decimals Packet to complete individually.
