A link to the video of the song is included, as well as the lyrics (it's a YouTube link, so you may not be able to view it, depending on your restrictions). The lesson teaches basic comparing, and provides opportunity for creating greater than, less than, and equal to sentences of your students' own at the end. This lesson was UPDATED as of 9/14/14 to include the Instructional Design components of aesthetics, instruction, and collaboration. More opportunities for practice and objectives on each page have been added, as well as MimioStudio 11 updates.

Thanks for the feedback. The font on the song wouldn't be too hard to change, so I'll probably re-upload with something different. My students didn't comment on that, but I'd hate for others to have difficulty!
