What young child doesn't enjoy grocery shopping? From holding the list, to pushing the cart, to helping pick out snacks, it always proves an engaging experience! These task cards will give your students that same excitement as they apply money and addition skills!
24 task cards designed to appear as grocery lists for students to add up the total cost of their items. Plus there's two cards at the end for you to personalize yourself! The lists range from 4-6 items with a Grocery Store Price List for students to reference throughout. Students then are asked to illustrate the amount of money it took to pay for their groceries.
Each card integrates many of the 3rd grade Math Common Core Standards. The task cards require students to have an understanding of place value, decimals, and regrouping in order to add their items together. Then the cards ask students to activate their prior knowledge of money values and illustrate the total price.
There is even a checklist for students to keep track of which cards they have completed! Turn the activity into a weeklong enrichment activity for early finishers, a whole group lesson where students trade cards, or a small group math center. In any capacity, students will love keeping track of their grocery lists!
