This math assignment is based on the Price is Right’s famous Grocery Game. It is a good idea to watch a YouTube clip of the Grocery Game as a class before working on this assignment. 

For this game, students choose from a list of five grocery items. The prices of each item are listed and the goal is to purchase a combination of items so that the total price is in between $20.00 and $21.00. 

This problem-solving task is differentiated to meet the needs of all learners. Some students may work diligently for a whole class period to arrive at a solution; others may be able to use estimation strategies in order to quickly find many ways to win the game (note: these students may require multiple copies of the “Work Page”).  

This package includes:

  • Student instruction sheet
  • Student work page
  • Marking rubric
  • Detailed answer key
