Guide Review - Grocery Cart Math

The activities in "Grocery Cart Math" are designed to be done in the grocery store during weekly shopping trips. Parents will discuss the activity with the student before entering the store to ensure they understand their mission. Students gather their information and complete the top sections of the sheet while mom does her grocery shopping. After the shopping trip, the students will then complete the 'at home' and 'talk about it' sections.

Some activities provide math skills practice, while others help to develop smart shopping skills. Grocery Cart Math can also help answer the often asked question, "Why do we have to know this?"
