  • Gather students together for the lesson.
  • Hold up two cookies (either real or pictures) one that is small and one that is obviously larger. Ask, "Which cookie would you rather eat?"
  • Point to each cookie and ask students to give a thumbs up to show which they would rather eat. Then ask students to share why they chose their cookie using the sentence starter, "I chose this cookie because ________."
  • Say, "When something looks good you usually want the bigger one because you want more, not the smaller one which is less."
