Lesson: 5 children have birthdays in the same month. Students are instructed to read the word problem, then fill in the chart below with details of how much birthday money each kid received.
Afterwards, students are instructed to use the same chart to answer questions regarding HOW MUCH MORE money does one birthday kid have over another, who has the LEAST / MOST amount of money and various scenarios of how much money a birthday kid will have left if they spend it on particular objects.
Finally, students are asked to use their graph paper to create a bar graph to chart how much money each person received for their birthday.
This can either be used as a homework assignment, in-class practice or quiz.
