Grocery Store Estimation

Making math skills relevant to the students' lives is very important.  Being able to answer the question "Why do I need to learn this?"can help engage and motivate the students more in the classroom.  Our review skill in math this week is Estimation.  I found some food pictures at my local teacher store.  I'm going to write prices on the back of the cards and put them in a grocery bag.  I've created a simple estimation center to go along with the food cards that my kids will complete this week - I just wanted to share :)

These are the cards I'll be using :)

There are two sides to this activity.  Click on the picture to download! :)  
I hope everyone has a good week.  4 days until Spring Break for me!!
