This product allows students to practice "real world" situations with decimals in a fun and engaging manner. It aligns with Common Core State Standards: 5.NBT.A.3, 5.NBT.B.7, 6.NS.B.3.
Students will use the blank menu to create their own restaurant menu and then use the task cards to "purchase" items off of their menus or other students' menus. Students then can extend their purchase with a challenge card (add tax and tip) or a coupon card. A sample menu is included in case you want students to all use the same menu.
In addition to getting practice with adding, subtracting and multiplying decimals, students also gain exposure to budgeting, choices and restaurant dining.
Included: Blank Restaurant Menu, Sample Restaurant Menu, 12 Restaurant Situation Cards, 6 Restaurant Challenge Cards (tax and tip), 6 Restaurant Coupon Cards, 6 Restaurant Strategy Cards and Blank Answer Page.
I have also included the lesson plan that I used in my class as an example of how you can use these cards. My lesson is just one of a variety of ways that these can be used in the classroom. I envision that they can be a whole group lesson, small group lesson or center activity.
I hope that your students enjoy using these cards as much as my students did!
