Shopping Cart Money Game

In this Shopping Cart Game, students will practice making change and recording their transactions.

Recommendations for play:
Spin the spinner and move ahead that many spaces. If you land on a food item, you must purchase it for the amount listed. The game ends when one player reaches the finish line. The game can end sooner if one player runs out of money. The winner is the player who finishes with the most amount of money. There are additional rules of play for a second version of the game, where students practice identifying the food group for the items they purchase.

Shopping Cart Money Game includes the following:
• Instructions for two versions of play
• Spinner
• Game Board
• Transaction Sheet (one for each version of the game)
• Food Groups Poster

Please Note: The Transaction Sheet printables are available in blackline only, while the rest of the pages are in colour.

Please see the thumbnails and preview for more information.

If you have any issues printing, please select "fit" rather than "actual size" as every printer has slightly different settings.
