This activity helps students practice adding money and making change. Students will pretend that they are in a restaurant either as a patron or as a server. Patrons will make orders being careful not to spend more money than they have and servers will make the correct change.
*patron order sheet (for students to add up their order to determine the total)
*server change sheet (for students to determine how much change is needed after payment)
*3 differentiated menus
-prices ending in .00, .50, or .25
-prices ending in .x0, or .x5
-prices ending in numbers that are not multiples of 5
*recording sheet for students to show work (great for notebooks or bulletin board display)
