Comparing Fractions Song

In Numberock's Comparing Fractions Song, Slater the Alligator is back to munch down fractions as he shows us how to compare fractions using the less than, greater than, and equal to symbols.

Comparing Fractions Song Lyrics

Verse One
Two sixths and five sixths:
the greater fraction is the one he picks.
Two sixths is less than five sixths on the models,
so he eats five sixths and away he waddles.

Chorus
The fraction that is greater
gets eaten by the alligator.
The fraction that is least
is never part of his feast.

Verse Two
Five eighths and three eights:
each has a fraction bar that illustrates
the equal parts for the gator to see...
that five eighths is greater than three.

Verse Three
Two fifths and two thirds:
the greater fraction is the one that he prefers.
He imagines fraction bars on each side;
Two fifths is less; he picks two thirds and opens wide.

Bridge
Now the values are the same on each side.
The gator wants to eat, but he can’t decide:
one half on the left, and two fourths on the right…
the fractions are equivalent, so he takes a HUGE bite!
