PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Buyer Comment: "This was a great lesson to pick up and use with my students. To begin I had them do this in pairs. The next day, I typed up the exact same word problems and had the students use it individually."

This 15 Sale Price, Taxes and Final Price Task Card resource allows your students to review money word problems. Example Questions Include: Question 1: The sales tax in Florida is 6%. If Amy bought a dress for $14, how much will she pay in total including sales tax? Question 3: Morgan paid $59.01 after taxes for a video game. If he paid $2.81 in sales tax, what was the regular sale price of the video game?

This resource is very unique. It can be utilized in a clue gathering, puzzle solving, highly active and engaging activity for those learning about solving Sale Price, Taxes and Final Price Money Word Problems or as an alternative to worksheet review for older students. What I love to do is have the kids go through the activity for the first half or two thirds of our review period then spend the remainder of the time reviewing the questions as a class on the overhead projector. Do you use Math Workshops in your class? These would be perfect! All answers are included and the game is really easy to understand.

I've also included a simple word document which just contains the questions and answers. I usually give this out to my students after we've completed the activity for them to review at home.

What's included:
- 15 Task Cards
- Student worksheet
- Teacher answer key
- Task Card Review Game Word Chart
- A complete answer chart for teacher and/or student use

Overview:

1) Task card review game - lots of fun!
- Students are placed in groups of two and have to work their way through the task cards. Each task card answer leads the student to a clue (a word).
- Once the group has completed each task card they will have enough clues to solve the puzzle.
- Once the group has solved the puzzle, they are the winner.

2) Typical task card review.
- You can simply distribute the Task Cards to your class for individual, group or whole class review
- The Task Cards can be projected on the board for whole class review
- The cards work well as cue cards, test review, etc.
