There are 3 activities that require students to think deeply. Each set of advertisements (Groceries, School Supplies, and Clothing & Shoes) ask students to use 2 different strategies to show their work.
Examples of Questions:
If you have $20.00, can you afford to buy 3 cakes? Explain your thinking.
Would it cost more to buy 3 gallons of milk or 4 bottles of juice?Explain your thinking.
Each set also contains a create your own story problem that they can trade with a partner.
My students loved these activities! They can be used for stations, mini lessons, 3 activity days, homework etc.
