Age Appropriateness

Stock the Shelves is a fun way for students to reinforce their skills in using a coordinate plane. The game does require students to understand negative numbers in a coordinate plane as well as positive numbers. The idea is to help a store clerk "stock the shelves" with drinks such as soda and chocolate milk before customers arrive. Each bottle must be positioned in its exact location. Students have two minutes to position all 20 bottles.

Skills Reinforced:

  • Coordinates
  • Positive and Negative Numbers on a Coordinate Plane
  • Coordinate Plane
