This compaction/enrichment activity is written for the gifted and high-ability math students in your classroom who require challenge. The concepts included in this packet match those found in Unit 3 of 2nd Grade Everyday Math CC Edition (As well as similar editions). This is also appropriate for any 2nd grade student who demonstrates mastery of basic concepts of money, coin values, and giving change (regardless of math program). Students will work independently or in small groups to plan and "create" a vending machine that can be used in school. Students will decide cost of each self-selected item and calculate change from a dollar and possible coin combinations. The final product will be a poster that shares the vending machine and the graphic organizers/charts with the final calculations. This is an interactive, high-interest activity for your gifted and high-ability students. Reflection questions and a final rubric are also included..
