Give your students the opportunity to practice division with real objects. There are two worksheets. One is for finding a pile of money. The other leaves what they find up to you.
I gave my fifth graders more than $1000 in play money with various denominations and let them work as a team to decide how to share it evenly. This led to team discussions involving problem solving and logic.
Afterwards, we debriefed and discussed how much quicker long division is and the students were able to see long division as helpful.
I hope you enjoy this freebie.
