This Smart Notebook was created to teach fifth grade children how to divide money. To begin the lesson, each group was given a bag of play money and were told they had to share the money evenly between themselves. The same amount of money they were given is represented on the first slide of this notebook. Then, I modeled for students how to use the standard algorithm to divide money. After completing a few practice problems, students were put into groups and given take out menus to practice dividing money. An example of the organizer students received is provided on the last slide. If you purchase this notebook I would be happy to email you with the Word Document I created with the group work for my lesson.
