This math activity is the perfect way to engage students, get them moving, and practice different ways to write money amounts using pictures, dollars & cents notation, and finding change.
The Money Monsters packet includes 24 cards, 5 student work pages and a corresponding answer key.
Each monster card features a unique monster and a money amount in either picture form or dollars and cents notation.
Set these cards up around the class for an all-class scavenger hunt or use them in centers as flash cards. Students will find the matching monster on their work page and fill in the amount in its different forms. They will also need to find change using an amount you decide as the teacher.
You can also use these as a math center or for fast finishers. Use all five pages or mix-and-match to suit your class' needs!
