The Penguins' Palace is a special make believe place just for penguins. They can get fish, hot chocolate, winter gear, even take swimming lessons! This PowerPoint Game is divided into two parts:
Round 1: The students will solve twenty word problems where they add up the total amount of money that the penguins spent on their items or outings. Each order contains two, three, or four two-digit numbers. The students can solve the problems using column addition, with money manipulatives, or by drawing out the dollars and coins.
Round 2: The students will be given ten money amounts and figure out the amount of money.
This activity can be used as an independent center, team game, or whole group with the students solving the problems on their own and then checking them together as a class. Students can answer the questions on dry erase boards, paper, math journals, etc. The answers follow all of the questions so the students get instant feedback.
