We will not count to one hundreds for this activity. Our job is to count to one hundred. Your task is to pretend that there is a special toy, game, or thing you want to buy. I will then put together six groups that will choose what toy, or thing to buy. Your job is to help me make a poster of how much money you need to buy that object on a Power Point slide. We will pretend that you have used money from you piggy bank, or money that you have gotten from our parents to count how much money you have, or need to buy what you want. The object, money and how much money you have, or need will all be shown on the poster.

Teacher’s Job I will Split you up into groups of six. That way we will only have four groups presenting. My job is to use the computer to find pictures of what you want to buy as a group and tell you how much money I will give you. The group will split up and each team member will count part of the team’s money. If you have any questions, or need scratch paper to add your money please let me know when I come around to check. When we finish our group project we will present them to the class in a Power Point Presentation. I will put the presentation together on the computer, but you will have to tell me what to put on your slides, what colors you want to use for the background and what color letters you want to use. When we finish the project, I will then show the class what you all came up with.

We can now being to work. We can now begin to count coins and bills to see how much money is needed to buy your favorite object.
