Kindergarten Ordering Numbers Worksheet 8: Descending Order. Arrange the numbers from greatest to least.

Do you know what ‘Descending Order’ means? We say the numbers are in descending order, when the numbers are arranged from the largest to the smallest. In this way we place the numbers in a decreasing order. For example, look at these numbers; 10, 7, 5, 4 and 11. These numbers are not in a proper order. How to arrange these numbers in descending order? First pick up the largest out of all the given numbers. Then the second largest, and so on until the smallest. Likewise, in the given series of numbers 11, 10, 7, 5 and 4 are arranged in a proper order. We call this arrangement ‘descending order’, because it starts with the greatest number and ends with the least number. With these online worksheets you can improve your ability in ordering numbers in descending order by arranging numbers from the largest to the smallest.
