PC-1609 Making Change Game

The fully illustrated game board (for up to four players) provides students with practice using "real-life" money skills as customers and store owners. A money line is printed on each side of the game board to assist students in making purchases and determining change owed.

Each side of the Making Change game board features an illustration of the front of a store. During game play, each student is the owner of a store as well as a customer at the other three stores. Each store features eight items that cost less than $1.00. Students sit in front of their stores on the game board and make change for customers when items are purchased. Stores include Hungry Hal's, Family Foods, Stop & Shop, and Big Buy.

A student spins to determine where he or she will make a purchase as a customer. The student chooses an item to buy from that store, identifies its price, and uses the money line on the game board to help determine how much money to give the store owner. For example, if a customer buys a bag of popcorn for $.55, he or she might give the store owner three quarters. The store owner then determines the difference between $.75 (three quarters) and $.55 (the item's price). Using the community money tray, the store owner gives the customer the correct amount of change.

The teacher's guide provides instructions and suggestions for game play, pregame teaching ideas, and game adaptations. Mini-picture cards and flash cards of the store items are included for students to review before playing. Reproducible worksheets and assessments provide additional reinforcement.

A fully illustrated Game Board; a Teacher's Guide; a Spinner; a plastic Money Tray with 25 dollar bills, 25 quarters, 50 dimes, 50 nickels, and 50 pennies; and black cardboard Markers for covering items that have already been purchased.
