Product Description
This is such a fun way and REAL WORLD example as to why students need to know how to subtract decimals. My students love this activity and would actually consider it more than a game than math practice.

All you need to complete this activity in your classroom would be menus from a favorite place to eat. Many restaurants have (To-Go) paper menus. I love using the "real" menus because it makes it more authentic. You can also just print off menus from restaurants websites. I have used Red Robin's menu in the past below is the link to the menu.

Students can work in pairs or on their own. These is a wonderful worksheet that works as a graphic organizer to help guide and organize their thinking and work. At the end of class students love to share what they and a friend will be eating.

I have created this to where it scaffolds the students learning so don't forget to remind the students to bring down the decimals when needed.

Common Core:
Number and Operations in Base Ten
Perform operations with multi-digit whole numbers and with decimals to the hundredths.
