Kids will have fun learning about greater than, less than and equal to with this inequalities song for children. This song not only teaches the infamous "hungry alligator", but it takes the time to explain what the symbols actually mean, so that kids can connect the symbol with the concept. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Greater than, less than, equal to
Greater than, less than, equal to
These symbols are the ones you use
For greater than, less than and equal to HEY!
Greater than, less than, equal to

Once upon a time there was a hungry alligator
He loved to eat numbers so he figured out a way to
Always get the biggest bite when the numbers were there
He would stop for a second, take a look and compare
Whichever number was the biggest of the two
Was the one that he would eat, so just to review
Here’s the main thing to know about the hungry alligator
He always eats the number that’s greater, GREATER!

Greater than, less than, equal to
Greater than, less than, equal to
These symbols are the ones you use
For greater than, less than and equal to HEY!
Greater than, less than, equal to

The greater than symbol points to the right
The less than symbol points to the left
The symbol always points to the number that’s smaller
I would like to tell you more but I’m running out of breath
Sometimes it can be hard to remember which symbol is which
So here’s a simple little tip:
The less than symbol is shaped like an "L"
Just remember "L" for "less" that’s how you can tell

"But what about the equal sign?"

Now here’s what it means when you see the equal sign:
The value of the numbers is the same on both sides
But on the other hand, greater than and less than
Are called inequalities because they’re not equal, man!

Greater than, less than, equal to
Greater than, less than, equal to
These symbols are the ones you use
For greater than, less than and equal to HEY!
Greater than, less than, equal to
