Worksheet Overview

This activity is all about comparing amounts.

We're going to be using the word fewest.

Example

Which group below has the fewest faces?

 A B C

Group A has 6 faces.

Group B has 3 faces.

Group C has 4 faces.

Group B has fewer faces than both the others because 3 is smaller than both 4 and 6.

Group B has the fewest faces.

Does that make sense?

What about these pictures of cats.

Which group has the fewest cats?

Group A:

Group B:

Group C:

Group A has 4 cats, Group B has 3 cats and Group C has 6 cats.

So, Group B has the fewest.

Let's try some questions now.
