Product Description
This is a fun, interactive, "up and moving" activity for students who've mastered specific levels of counting money. Students are given bags of money (plastic, or whatever you use in your classroom), based on mastery level. You can do this with just coins, coins and bills, and/or specific mixes of both!

The activity includes independent and interactive components:
Step 1 - Students count their own money and fill in amount at top.
Step 2 - Students circulate and record amounts of classmates' money. Then, they write, "I have more" or "I have less", before moving on to another classmate.
Step 3 - Once each student fills in all of the lines, they return to their seats to independently fill in the names of classmates who had more, less, and the same amount of money as they had.
Step 4 - This is up to you! I build in speaking/language expectations when I do this, so my students usually come up to the podium and share their results, using Correct Standard English. I've also had students to write comparative statements, using <,>,=.
You could also do a writing extension, or have students compare results with a partner. The options are endless!
