3 Sets of Differentiated Task Cards:
These task cards are differentiated for the wide range of learners we often have in our classrooms. Set 1 is geared towards those students who are just starting to work on making change from $2.00 to $5.00. They only need to make change for one item and some items have an extra cost added to it. Set 2 is for students who are able to complete multiple steps when making change with amounts from $3.00 to $8.00. These students are required to make change for two items while some items also have an extra cost added to it. Set 3 is for students who need an extra challenge. These students are required to make change with amounts from $5.00 to $10.00 for two to three items with extra costs added to most.
Students get hand-on practice in purchasing food items from a concession stand. One student is designated as the cashier and the other is the customer. Students use provided pictures of food and money to purchase items and make change with. A corresponding task sheet is provided for students to show their work.
