Title: Let's Go Shopping
Description:

Students will be given a task card stating how to spend a certain amount of money. Students must look through sale papers, find the items to purchase, add the totals, multiply quantities, subtract from the total, and write a check to purchase the items.

This is a College- and Career-Ready Standards showcase lesson plan.

Title: Skee Ball Champion
Description:

This is a fun learning activity that connects math to the real-world of arcade games. In this learning activity, students collaborate to find a strategy to win 450 points and win the grand prize playing Skee Ball. The students will then have the opportunity to practice their strategy on a virtual Skee Ball game.

This alignment is a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Title: Digital Breakout Safari for Grades 3-5
Description:

This Digital Breakout is a perfect way to enhance a unit of study with animals standards for grades 3-5. It can be used before or after a unit a study or field trip to the Birmingham Zoo. Students will work creatively and collaboratively to solve academic puzzles to unlock an answer. Academic puzzles are centered around a variety of Course of Study standards that engage students through the Breakout process. This activity can be done as a whole group for students that are not familiar with the Digital Breakout process. This activity can be done in small groups grades 2-5 in small groups for students that are familiar with the Digital Breakout process.  

This Learning Activity was created in partnership with the Birmingham Zoo.

Title: Subtraction With Regrouping StudyJam
URL: https://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/math/addition-subtraction/sub-with-regroup.htm
Description:

In this interactive activity, students will be led through steps to subtract multi-digit numbers using the strategy of regrouping. There are teaching activities as well as practice activities available. A handout that describes strategies taught during the interactive is available to be printed. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short quiz to assess their understanding.

Title: Subtracting Within 1000: Three-Digit Numbers and Regrouping
URL: https://aptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/qotam19nqcq/regrouping-when-subtracting-three-digit-numbers-khan-qotam19nqcq/
Description:

When there aren't enough tens (or hundreds, etc.) to subtract with, we can borrow (also called regrouping). This module provides videos and practice problems that demonstrate the standard algorithm for subtraction

Title: Adding: Three-Digit Numbers and Regrouping or Carrying
URL: https://aptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/9hm32lsq4ai/example-adding-with-carrying-khan-9hm32lsq4ai/
Description:

Learn how to add three-digit numbers using regrouping ("carrying") to move the tens (or hundreds or thousands) over to the next column. This is also known as the standard algorithm.
