Are you looking for a way to reinforce place value concepts in an engaging way that helps your students make connections? “Run a Candy Store” is a real-life math project where students will complete eleven different place value tasks.

You might choose to print specific tasks to use during Math centers, or you might make a booklet out of all of the tasks and let your students choose which one to do when. The choice is yours.

Take a look at what you’ll find inside this math project:

TASK #1: THE PLAN

You can’t believe it! Your family is buying a candy store and YOU get to help run it! Let’s think of a name for the candy store and design a poster to advertise.

TASK#2: STOCKING THE SHELVES

Your first shipment has come in and it’s your job to stock the shelves with candy! Figure out how many of each candy was ordered.

Skills: place value chart, comparing and ordering

TASK#3: SURVEY YOUR CUSTOMERS

You decide to survey 100 kids in your school to see what kind of candy is their favorite. Interpret the graph and represent the candy with base 10 blocks.

Skills: skip-counting, base 10 blocks, graphing and data interpretation, addition, subtraction

TASK #4: THE GRAND OPENING

It’s time for the Grand Opening Event at your candy store! You have lots of fun things planned for the day. First up, spin the wheel to see what each person wins! Next, guess the number of candies in the jar!

Skills: base 10 blocks, expanded form, comparing and ordering, addition, subtraction, number words

TASK #5: THE MYSTERY GUEST

You are SO excited about the mystery guest who is handing out candy at the Grand Opening! Use the place value clues to shade the picture and discover who the mystery guest is!

You just got your first big customer order! Let’s take a look at the graphs to see what she would like!

Skills: skip-counting, picture graphs, data interpretation, addition

Inventory is important when you own a business! This means that we count all of the candies to see what we have available.

You decide to make up some surprise bags to sell! Inside each surprise bag will be a variety of candy.

WAYS TO USE MATH PROJECTS IN YOUR CLASSROOM:

Math projects are an ideal way to consolidate learning. I recommend using them as an engaging activity AFTER skills have been learned rather than during learning. You will likely find that engagement is very high and that your students ask to do more of these!

There are many ways to use math projects in your classroom. Some of the most popular are:

•a small-group or pairs activity

•a guided math activity to allow you to see where your students are struggling

•a fun, rewarding way to engage your early finishers

•a low-prep, easy-to-implement activity for a substitute teacher

Enjoy!
