Assessment & Feedback


Introduction 1. Warm up activity As a class, work on the word problems in the Making Change unit on IXL Maths Body

Modification: Use student scribes to demonstrate the answer

Interactive whiteboard

Anecdotal notes on which students



2. Grocery Shop Half of the class are given a small grocery list on an index card (all different) with a list of items and prices of each item that they must purchase. They will be role-playing as customers. These students must work out the total cost of these items before they start. Once checked by the LM, they will be given fake money to use. Students must collect their items in their basket and make their way to any student who is the cashier. The student/cashier and student/customer must then determine the change that will be given. After the transaction, students can swap roles, get a new index card/grocery list and repeat the activity. Conclusion/Closure/Wrap-up 3. Gather students on the carpet and have a quick discussion of the lesson. Give students the opportunity to express difficulties they found What did you like about this activity?

Modification: Have students work with a peer tutor/partner

Shopping index cards Grocery items Baskets Fake money

could calculate the total cost of their items.

Anecdotal notes on which students could correctly calculate the change required for their transaction. Observation before, during and after whole class activity Can they share their ideas with the class? Who completed the activity correctly? Who didnt? Who needs more help on this topic?

Extension: Have students create their own shopping list and prices.

Reflection: - Did the lesson flow nicely? What would I change next time? - What was the best part of the lesson? - Were the learning outcomes achieved?
