 Warming Up (10 minutes)
Announce that the session will start with a game: The class is divided into 2 groups: girls versus boys. Type a number and ask the students to either share the number that comes before or after it. The first girl or boy to type the correct guess will earn a point for her or his team. Some guesses until both groups collect more than 10 points. Then, stop and ask, “If group A earned ___ points, and group B earned ___ points, who won the game? How do we know?” Have students share voice notes to explain.
 Learning Activity 1 (15 minutes)
After listening to some voice notes, send Video 1 and ask students to listen closely identify how to compare numbers. After that, ask students to share thumbs up or thumbs down to agree/disagree with the following sentences:
1 To compare 2digit numbers, we look first at the ones place (False → thumbs down). Then, the explain that it is the tens place that we look at first.
2 If the digits in the tens place are the same, we compare the digits in the ones places (True → thumbs up). Give an example.
3 2 numbers are equal when their digits are the same (False → thumbs down). Add that the same digits have to be in the same places, too.
To check for understanding, share Link 1 and have students share screenshots of their scores with you.
 Learning Activity 2 (20 minutes)
Share the links to the following three games and instruct the students the following: Start with the level 2 game. If you find it difficult, go back and play level 1 then proceed. If you find level 2 easy, they move on to level 3.
Link 2: Level 1  Easy
Link 3: Level 2  On Level
Link 4: Level 3  Challenging
To check for understanding, have students share screenshots of their scores with you and ask questions or for help if needed.
