Inquiry Based Maths Assignment; Open a Store - Extend learning of decimals (into the hundredths) and simple percentages (50% and 10%) with links to the real world. Grades 3-5.
Enrich and extend your students' understanding of decimals (into the hundredths) and simple percentages (50% and 10%) with this simple but effective open a store project. Students link their learning to real life by creating 3 products to sell and calculating the income and costs of these products by assigning a price for each with tenths and hundredths. Perfect as an extension for those early finisher or just as an assignment at the end of a decimals and percentages unit. This worked beautifully for my more advanced students who needed a deeper learning of decimals, percentages and basic operations.
Please use this as an inquiry based assignment, which is student led and teacher assisted. I promote a student centered learning environment and this assignment is designed to be used in this environment. Students should lead all investigations and become independent critical thinkers with this project.
Rubric is included and should be talked through with students to provide them with your exact expectations, setting the scene for an independent learning situation.
This project also comes in an 8 project bundle, saving you dollars if this is the type of learning you use in your classroom. Follow the link below:
