Don't Be Unreasonable

Copy onto cards the amounts shown below, one per card. Shuffle the cards and divide them evenly. Label the sections of a spinner $10, $15, $25, $50, $75, $100, $200, $500.

Each partner places a card face up. Then one partner spins the spinner. Each partner writes the number of items you could buy at the price shown on the card with the amount of money shown on the spinner. Check the reasonableness of each other's answers. Continue in this way, taking turns at the spinner, until all of the cards have been played. Try to "purchase" more items than your partner by the end of the game.
