When they have understood how we know numbers that are greater than and numbers that are less than, you can advance their imagination further by forming a beautiful brain tasking song that will help them in solving greater than and less than problems very fast.

• is greater than 1
• is greater than 2
• is greater than 3
• is greater than 4
• is greater than 5
• is greater than 6
