PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

TEK 6.14C

My students love this activity where they compete to see who will end up with the most money! Each student will take turns drawing cards that have a statement for either a deposit or a withdrawal that they record on their check register.

Teacher Instructions:

o I have my students split into groups of 3 – 5 for this activity
o Pass out ‘Check Register Challenge’ to each student.
o Have each student draw a ‘Starting Balance’ card and record the amount on their check register
 Modified (simpler version): Have each start with $1000
o Students will take turns drawing a card from the ‘Deposit/Withdrawal’ stack and recording it on their check register.
 During each players turn, I have everyone in the group checking for accuracy (either on a separate piece of notebook paper or maker boards).
 You can set a time limit or ‘Round’ limit for your students to finish and the person with the highest
 Modification: You can have a minimum balance set ($100 or if a student’s balance goes into the negatives) that they also get a bank fee of $35 as well)
o Exit ticket idea – Have your students come up with their own ‘Deposit/Withdrawal cards and show what it would look like on a check register
