Menu Math Center

by Jill & Cathy on July 5, 2015

Menu Math Task Cards, Menu & Recording Page | Two Levels | FREE from The Curriculum CornerGiving students experiences that are similar to real-world situations are always useful in math.  We created these simple menus and task cards so that students can get practice with reading menus and performing operations with money amounts.  Simply print and laminate the menus and task cards, copy recording pages for students and place at a center with appropriate money manipulatives.  We have created two levels for differentiation.  Each set of task cards contains 12 problems.  The green has amounts and totals that may end up over $1.00, while the yellow has smaller amounts.

To make it feel like a more authentic experience, you could set up the center to mimic a restaurant table with a table cloth, centerpiece, plates, napkins and silverware.  Our students always loved when we did this!
