Here is a checkbook balancing activity that includes:
•A list of transactions
•A blank check register form for students to fill out using the transaction list
•Blank checks and deposit slips for students to fill out
•A bank statement
•A form for students to use to balance their registers
•A key to both the register and the balancing (I assume you can verify the checks and deposit slips yourself!)
A few notes: everything is editable, even the names/addresses/bank info/check numbers on the checks and deposit slips. You can add whatever characters you would like! (for this one, I have students writing out checks to country music singers)
I’ve included the scoring sheet that I use – essentially one point for everything that should be written. Plus two points for including first and last name, to round it up to an even 100. Of course feel free to score as you wish! Enjoy!
