This is an activity to practice adding and subtracting decimals. Students get to pick their jobs that have a salary included. Students start off with $1,000.00 and get to make purchases from 6 different categories, Car, Entertainment, Vacation, House, College, and House. Throughout the activity there can be pay days, lottery wins, and tickets.
The entire product is not editable, only the salaries and the prices are. There is 5 editable, blank sides where you can add pictures, descriptions and costs for colleges that are local to you!
UPDATE 2019: The directions and steps I follow when using this activity in my classroom have been added to the file.
How I did it, step by step and photos, head over to my blog.
There are many ways to use this product, feel free to get creative!
*There is an editable format and a ready to go PDF format!*
Some pieces are editable to fit you, but others are set because they are universal! Costs are all editable to fits the needs of your students.
