Students can use either included printable manipulatives or physical realistic manipulatives (if you have them.) There are cards with different pictures of foods. Children have to plan out what coins would be needed to "purchase" each food. There is space for them to glue the printable coins on each card that has an individual food item, in order for easy assessment. There is another page where they can draw coins or glue printable coins in rows to show the coins they can use to "purchase" each item.
