Practise comparing three-digit numbers with this hands-on worksheet.

🎲 Roll, Create and Compare Numbers!

Are you looking for a fun way for your students to practise comparing numbers? This place value worksheet can be used over and over again! Students can choose to complete this comparing three-digit numbers activity independently or with a partner.

This maths worksheet is completed by rolling a die 3 times, writing the number in each box, and then comparing the 2 three-digit numbers. This worksheet has 7 numbers that can be compared, but with each roll, your students are bound to get a different result each time they complete the worksheet!

Students will compare each pair of three-digit numbers and write the appropriate symbol needed to complete the number sentence using:

> (greater than)

< (less than)

= (equal to)
