Students work through 12 task cards, adding the transactions on each card to their registers. Students then find balances after each transaction and a final balance. Task cards do not need to be completed in order; every student will end with the same balance if all transactions are entered correctly.
A check register acts as a student answer sheet. Also included is a simple grading rubric so that you can award credit to students who showed effort but may not have gotten the final balance correct. I use this activity in my high school Consumer Math class, but I feel that it can probably also work for younger students.
