This is an enrichment project I created to help push my higher level math thinkers in grade 2 to the next level of real-world math application. Though I used it for grade 2, it could be used as a review for at the beginning of grade 3 as well.
In this project, students are given a book catalog and asked to spend $200 to buy at least 20 books/items for their classroom. They used the catalog to choose their books and list them with individual item prices, quantity and total cost.
The product also includes a page for students to show their work, as well as questions for students to answer about the table they completed. A teacher rubric is included to assess student work. A student reflection rubric and survey are also included to give you feedback about your students' experience with the project. This can be used as a classroom enrichment project, small group project, or even homework based on your students.
Skills assessed include:
-solving multiple step word problems
-adding two-digit numbers within 100
-adding multiple two-digit numbers
-repeated addition / multiplication
-addition strategies within 100
