Product Description
This is a great problem solving activity that I use with my class. They imagine that they have just got a new puppy/dog. It is their job to use their problem solving skills to purchase supplies for their dog. They must work within a $20.00 budget when selecting their purchases. It is highly motivating for my students and they are immediately able to feel passionate about their choices. It is so much fun to see their reasoning.

This task includes addition of money with regrouping, lining up decimals, subtraction of money with regrouping, working within a budget, and written responses to problem solving.

The Pet Store Flier sheet can be copied/printed in color for groups to look over, or in black and white for individuals to make their selections. In my classroom I printed out 6 colored sheets and laminated them for use from year to year. I also make black and white copies for students to circle and make their choices.
