Money Activities Column Addition “Let’s Go Grocery Shopping Game”
Use Two to five players. Cute game pieces provided for your convenience.
The game board is four sheets of paper. Look at the product cover to see how the game board looks when put side-by-side. If you like, glue the game board on a poster board, or tape it together on the backside, or place it in sheet protectors, or Laminate it for more durability.
Students sort and place the food cards by categories face-up on the board so that they can find them faster when they land on the food items.
On their turn, players will draw one of the sixty instruction cards and move accordingly to the instruction on the card. As students land on food items, they will find the matching food card and put it in their imaginary cart in front of them. If they land on an item that is gone, the shelf is empty, and they will not have anything to put in their grocery carts on that turn.
This product contains thirty-nine food cards, which allow students to practice column addition using a real-world grocery store shopping application. When students have reached the point of checkout or have received eight food items, they will take their cards, record them on their worksheet, and get totals.
Students must add four items at the top of their worksheet, and then add the rest of their items on the bottom half of worksheet.
The game will continue for the rest of the students until everyone has checked out or there are no more food items.
There are two sets of food cards for different levels of students. One set with whole dollars and the second set harder with prices at a mixture of dollars and cents. Use the set that you feel is the appropriate level for your students.
To save on ink, I printed mine using the grayscale setting in instead of color.
