How many ice blocks?

WALT: use what we know to solve maths problems.
Problem: I have $4.00 and ice blocks are 80c each. How many ice blocks can I buy?
First I got my $4 and swapped each $1 for 5 20c pieces.
Then I put all the 20c into groups of 4 (that is 80c). I can buy 5 ice blocks.

Wow Lizzy! What super thinking. You thought about what you know about money to do some very clever thinking. I love the way you could explain your thinking to the me and then the class.
