What you'll need:
Grocery store coupons and paper
What to do:
- Involve the family in making a shopping list. Mark checks or tallies next to each item to indicate the number needed. This helps children learn to collect data.
- Involve the children in predicting how much milk or juice will be needed for a week. You might decide to estimate by cups, explaining that 4 cups are equal to a quart and 4 quarts are equal to a gallon. Also, try estimating by liters. How does a liter compare to a gallon?
- Choose coupons that match the items on the grocery list. Discuss how much money will be saved on various items by using coupons.
Preparing a shopping list from advertised prices can help children with mental math and estimation.
