Many of my life skills students are not aware of the concept of estimating prices for their purchases. This often is a direct result of them not understanding the concept of place value to help support the process of reading numbers properly.

This unit is a great extension to my "Reading Numbers" unit. With this current unit (Estimating Prices), students practice selecting what price they think various items will be. Prices for cars, candy bars, computers, and clothing all range vastly and it is important for students to be able to differentiate between the small differences in where a decimal point is.

This unit has been converted to be 100% DIGITAL! This activity is specifically formatted to be used with Google Drive and is compatible with Google Classroom. Google Drive is an amazing resource that many educators are now using as an interface to support 1:1 digital instruction in the classroom. I pair it up with Google Classroom (a free website) that allows me to digitally send each student in my class a copy of the worksheets that they later submit to me for grading. It is an amazing paper-free process and the kids LOVE working on these worksheets on the computer.

This is a great, simple activity that students can easily complete independently on their own. Students simply drag and drop a red circle (already included on the digital sheets) onto their answers. I love using the data I receive from it for IEP goals for my special education students for things like shopping, budgeting, and overall number sense as well!

Need a IEP goal sample? This one would work great with this activity:

"By mm/dd/yyyy, when given 10 randomly selected items, Student X will increase his/her math skills from correctly estimating the price _ out of 10 times to correctly estimating the price _ out of 10 times, as measured by classroom based assessments"

The possibilities are truly endless!

Purchase Includes DIGITAL Access To:

- 20 pages of randomly selected real world items with 4 price choices underneath.
