[SCORE!] a comparison game

It's spring soccer season around these parts, and my littles LOVE soccer.
When I saw the adorable soccer player (football!) from Cre8tive Hands, I knew I had to use him to make a fun game for my class!!

My boys, especially, are going to LOVE this one!
Comparisons are proving to be a little tricky for my class.  I'm hoping that this game gives us a good understanding of the symbols.

Each player chooses a "goal" (greater than or less than).
Players take turns choosing a card from the deck.  They work together to figure out the correct comparison (see the built in scaffolding?!  Brilliant, no?!).  The card is placed in the goal that matches the comparison.  EQUAL cards are placed in the center of the field.
When a soccer boy card is chosen, the player that chose that card gets to take ALL of the equal cards from the center and put them in his goal!
Winner is the player with the most GOALS!
I think they're going to eat this up!!

Image is linked to the color version.
Those of you poor souls (like me, lol) who don't print in color, the black and white version is HERE!!  :)

Take it, love it, print it, pin it, COMMENT on it!
I'm hoping for a much better day today (although I'm being observed AGAIN! - 3rd time in less than a week!!!).
And tonight I simply must finish my math mid-term.
I must.
It's due tomorrow.
Have a great day!!
