### Description

This **more than, less than and equal to BUNDLE** math teaching unit is a comprehensive pack (405 pages) that includes everything a teacher needs to teach, reinforce, and practice the concept of **comparing quantities** (more than-less than-equals to), **comparing** **weight** (heavier-lighter), and **comparing capacity** (holds more-holds less). **This more than, less than, equal to bundle pack offers tools for hands on learning: posters, direct comparison mats, worksheets, and center activities to cater to different learning styles. **
