PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson is a great way to introduce students to writing checks and balancing checkbooks. Students start out with a review of adding and subtracting decimals, are shown detailed checks and transaction registers and given the opportunity to practice writing checks and balancing a checkbook. They are then put into cooperative learning groups for further practice.

Available as part of two bundles of resources:

Beyond The Worksheet Again

Decimal Operations Unit Resources

Also available in my 6th Grade Math Mega Bundle!
