From Mrs. Becker...
5th grade has been working on adding and subtracting decimals. We played a game of life in math class where kids had to make decisions on purchasing homes, cars, college, entertainment, vacations, etc. They earned money through paydays and lotteries and paid money for fines. Students had to determine if they would be depositing (adding) or withdrawing (subtracting) based on each scenario. The kids really enjoyed this activity!
What a great way to not only teach decimals but teach a life skill as well! Budgeting should be a snap for these 5th graders!
