With these next dollar up money task cards, your students can learn to make purchases even when they can't make change. And they are now available for PDF, Google Slides and PowerPoint to help with distance learning. Great for life skill classes, these multiple- choice money tasks cards are perfect for practicing money skills in a functional way with the next dollar strategy.

These task cards are already differentiated by difficulty. Of the 40 task cards, 20 focus on finding what can be bought for $1 to $9 and cards 21-40 focus on determining the most expensive purchase that can be made with the set amount of money.

Who Are These Designed For?

These task cards are great for any age of students who struggle to make change but have 1-1 correspondence. They are specifically designed for middle and high school students but would be appropriate for some elementary-aged students as well.

How I Use Them:

  • They also are a great choice for independent work systems.
  • Students can circle their answers or using a bingo marker or clothespin
  • Give the students just the types of problems that they are able to practice
