Our Add/Subtract with Money lesson plan teaches students about money, including the value of each bill and coin in US currency, and how to add and subtract with it. During this lesson, students are asked to complete an activity in which they answer questions based on the cost of specific items, such as “I have $10.00. How much change will I get if I buy the football?”. Students are also asked to look at pictures of money and determine how much money is shown, demonstrating that they understand what each bill and coin is worth.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to convert money to a decimal form and add and subtract the decimal amounts.
