This is a lesson plan I did for an evaluation, and I scored the highest possible on it.
Lesson Focus - Students will write and solve word problems with multiple steps.
You will need to get a few pedometers from the gym teacher to do this lesson. I used pedometers to connect the lesson to real-life and included the students.
In the lesson plan under guided practice that says a few students will role play a real life situation, you will need a few items with prices on them for a couple of students to go shopping and another student to be the cashier. I am including the word problem that I did with the grocery store activity to give you an example of how I incorporated decimals into the lesson. I also included the 5 problem worksheet, and the UPS model that I use to help the students organize word problems. The word problem I used with the pedometers is also included as an example of whole numbers.
