Graphic Organizer helps students to count up from the "cost of the item" to the "amount given to the clerk". Starting with the smallest coin, students draw the coins and keep track of the change below each coin column. When they reach the "amount given to the clerk" they count up their change and write that amount in the last column. A completed sample is included.
You can print and laminate the graphic organizer (two per page) for reusing or you can print and students can write their answers directly on the page. Use the laminated version for practice and the paper copy for assessment.
Students can also use coins to place on the graphic organizer's columns instead of drawing the coins for counting change.
