I hope you and your students enjoy this and that it makes your life easier! Counting money can be difficult for students, especially when mixed coins are involved. I always try to give as much practice as possible so this is perfect for my students.
The main thing I like about this activity is that the individual pages can be used in isolation OR the entire packet can be used as a project! I LOVE projects!
Project: This project takes students through the process of starting their own business, a lemonade stand! Students will design a sign for their stand, “collect” and count money raised to start their business, “order” the supplies they need, make choices about what they can afford, and problem solve situations for the future of their business. A project cover is also included incase you would like to bind the students’ finished products.
Individual Activities: Each page is worded so it makes sense as an activity on its own. There are various difficulty levels included.
