At the completion of this project students will demonstrate their ability to accurately fill out checks. Students will also review how a check register is used and practice adding/subtracting their own deposits and withdrawals to the register to find their balance.
This activity is based on real life finances that students will be familiar with. This real data will make the work more meaningful as students practice their decimal computations and begin to learn about finances.
The activity is linked to common core mathematics standards. The file includes teacher procedure, student directions, project rubric and check register.
