Classroom Supplies

This Classroom Supplies activity & project also includes:

Challenge young mathematicians to buy classroom supplies by staying within the means of a $1,000 budget. The mathematical activity provides learners with the opportunity to decide what items from the supply list would benefit a class of 20 students, and calculate the totals using the four operations. A comprehensive approach to costs and benefits, children can create a labeled bar graph to represent the use of the money. Because there will be various solutions to the investigation, class members are encouraged to compare their choices with a partner. Note: A misalignment in the activity says that students will engage in Common  Core standard MP3, but it is actually MP4.
