Greater than and less than is a neat concept to teach with the alligator or crocodile mouth. Students can also have an art activity prior to the lesson to create alligator sock puppets. These puppets can be utilized in the lesson to help students choose the larger number. This type of attention to the small details make it more enjoyable and will help the students focus.
