Product Description
Students will get to practice their addition and subtraction of decimals to the hundredths place. They get to "buy" items with their money as they work through a variety of different purchases. Give your students an alternative to boring practice worksheets with this Choose Your Own Equation activity which can be used for practice, math stations or assessment. The goal is to get to the end of the task with some money leftover.

Two variations of the lesson is included: one where everyone starts with the same amount and another where students are given an individual job and starting amount.

This activity can be done as a whole class, small groups or individuals and it can be used for a lesson, assessment, math stations or as an activity to keep those busy bees working. It's just print and you're ready to go. You can also use the menus in a google slides format to cut down on printing.

Students will "purchase" shelter, clothing, food, transportation, entertainment, lifestyle, amenities and maybe even a pet! It all depends on whether or not they can determine if they have enough money.

This activity can run on its own if you have a few student experts to help be "bankers." They can help check student answers. It will keep kids busy for a long time with very little preparation from the teacher.

-student booklet
-price menus (also in a digital format to reduce printing)
-lesson plan with two variations
-answer key for the first three questions of Variation #1
-32 individual jobs and starting amounts
-Modification strategies that require no/little preparation

This activity was designed for Grade 5 Math Number Operations from the Alberta Program of Studies, but it can be used with any grade level that has decimal addition and subtraction. It compliments our Decimals and Fractions Interactive Notebook.

It has been tested with students from grades four through six and students regularly ask if they can do it AGAIN! Sometimes we do it again and they pick different things to buy. They LOVE it.
