This activity is aligned to the 7th grade Common Core Standards. It is meant to help students see how integers are used in the real world. Students receive a balance and spend their time shopping at 5 different stores. At some point, all of their accounts will go negative. This activity is also differentiated. There are different balances for students to start off with based on how strong their knowledge is of adding and subtracting integers. The end of the activity is used to help students reflect on what the activity has to do with integers, and what they learned from the activity.
