Easter Basket Math: Financial Literacy Fun for Grades 4-6
About This Product
Are you looking for a fun and engaging thematic math lesson for your intermediate students in grades 4-6? Here's an Easter basket math lesson that is visually-appealing and seamlessly incorporates financial literacy and budgeting practice!
How to Use:
• There are four Easter baskets with different budgets: $5.20, $3.00, $4.35, and $5.85. Decide how many you want to give to each of your students and print those sheets.
• Give each student a sheet of treats to "buy." Students cut out different-priced treats to fill each basket and meet the budget. There are four different items with four different prices: Easter eggs are 20 cents, chocolate is 35 cents, marshmallow hearts are 55 cents and easter bunny treats are $1.05.
• There are many ways to solve each basket; students can get creative with this open-ended math activity. There is work space included for students to show their calculations.
• Assign as many baskets as you like: from 1 to 4. You can differentiate easily!
A sample answer key is included, but there are many ways to solve each basket.
Grades to Use With:
This lesson is designed for students in grades 4-6 who are learning how to work with decimals to the hundredths. They can add and subtract the amounts of money, or they can use multiplication with decimals if they have learned how. This lesson could also work well in high school special education classes.
