Clearly understanding place value is critical as students move into the upper grades, as Math moves towards a more algorithm based approach. Why not have fun, while learning this critical concept! This packet of five fun cooperative Common Core Aligned activities allows students the opportunity to:
* Work with others
* Explore Money and Place Value using real life simulations
* Be creative and integrate art, writing and mathematics
* Have fun while they learn important mathematical concepts!
Open Your Own Restaurant!
Math Shopping Simulation
Who Wants Dinner Out?
Money Estimation - Cha-Ching!
This is approximately 2 weeks worth of Common Core Aligned place value and money activities, depending on the pace of your mathematicians. Using shopping, restaurant scenarios, and investments as the settings for this learning opportunity, students become fully engaged, and realize the real-life applicability of mathematics. Math is all around us, and it can be fun!
