Turn Errand Time into Math Time!
I don’t know about you, but it always seems like my students need more opportunities to apply money skills to real life situations.
This download contains three different activities which will have students reading, recording, and comparing the prices on fruits and vegetables and figuring out how much money, using specific coins, it would take to buy certain produce items.
This download contains three separate activities and a parent letter. There are color and black and white worksheet options for all three. They are as follows:
Parent Letter: The parents will be learning partners in this activity, copy the letter, fill in the return by date, and send with the activity worksheets.
Supermarket Math: Students will take this worksheet to the grocery store the next time they are shopping with an adult.
Comparing Apples to Apples: Students compare the prices of different types of apples while shopping at the supermarket. This activity could also be adjusted to work in the classroom if the teacher brings in different types of apples and attaches prices to them.
Supermarket Flyer Math: A similar activity to the first but tailored to fit a situation in which the teacher brings supermarket flyers into the classroom for students to work from.
Let's get our students using math in real life situations...
