Ask the class to decide which number is greater than or less than the other and tell the volunteers where to stand in order to make the sentence true.

Main Activity
All of the sentences on the worksheet are true. Pupils use the '>' (greater than) and the '<' (less than) symbols to make the number sentences on the worksheet true.
