We are working on numbers again with this activity, but we are taking it a step further by asking our Lil’s to compare two numbers to determine which number is worth more. This encourages our Lil’s to think about numbers as more than just symbols or words when counting. Instead, the numbers represent values and have a relationship with other numbers.
