Adding and subtracting decimal activity.
The overall purpose of this resource is to engage your students as they learn to add and subtract decimals. Students have been stranded on a deserted island because of a hurricane. Luckily, they do have a laptop computer with a handy internet connection from a coconut tree. Students will work with each other to “purchase” items to help them remain on the deserted island or leave the island. The goal is for students to spend as close to the $1,000 that grandma gave them.
