Within this resource you will find an activity designed to get students to put their mental math skills to work, while doing some holiday shopping. This is a great activity to keep those minds engaged with the holidays approaching.
This activity challenges students to determine how many different combinations of gifts they can buy, that will total exactly $100.
This activity can be completed individually, in partners, or in groups. To increase participation, try putting the students in groups and making a competition out of who can find the most possible answers.
I have also included 2 alternative activities to help you meet the needs/abilities of your specific classroom.
