Add it up cafe is an engaging lesson to do while teaching addition and subtraction! It takes adding/ subtracting to real life and shows them how it is useful in real life. In my classroom, the students became waiters and waitresses and LOVED it! I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine did :)
Want to make it more engaging?
+add table cloths like you're at a restaurant
+get the waiters aprons and cute name tags!
+ laminate the menus so they are nice and thick like they are real menus
+have ketchup and mustard on each table
+have napkins on each table
This can be as much or as little as you make it!
