Estimation Shopping

Budding mathematicians use paper and pencil to make a list of the food they want to buy. Choices are listed on the board, each student may "spend" $10. After they estimate the food they can buy, they add up the costs of their choices to see how close they are. Students should try to spend as close to $10 as they can without going over.

Lesson Planet has given new life to concepts that I have taught for years! It is an awesome resource. I introduced my student teacher to Lesson Planet last year and she is using it this year in her classroom.
