I love to change up my activities from year to year. Even though my students did extremely well last year on the state achievement test, I hate to do the same lessons every year. One reason I try to change it up from year to year, is that students are not the same each year. Some years are better than others while some years require a different approach. This year, the students require a different approach. I have to be very explicit with my directions and expectations. I cannot assume anything this year. With that being said, I made some new activities in order to teach this year’s topics to mastery.
I came up with the GREAT GROCERY HUNT! This activity is AMAZING! I used products that anyone should be able to find in any grocery circular! One great thing about this activity is that it is open ended and can be done with any grocery store ad. In my classroom, there were 3 different apples to pick from. I did not mind which apple they chose as long as the math was correct.
As an added bonus, this activity helps their inferential thinking skills, that they need so badly in reading class. Because the questions are written in clues, students must gather clues and decide on which product to use in their solution.
Download comes with activity sheets, teacher directions and answer key. It also comes with a word doc that is completely editable! You can add your own questions or edit mine! You can make it more difficult or use different product in your own grocery store circular.
This could be done individually or with partners. You could also put this in a math station! To get your own copy visit my TpT store or click HERE!
