Product Description
The \$100 Mall Challenge Activity
Appropriate for grades 6-8 & Homeschool

**Get a better deal on this and 10 other activities in THIS BUNDLE**

PURPOSE:
This activity is a great activity for helping your kids see how relevant percents are to their real lives. Each student will be given a task of building an outfit with only \$100 at the mall. Each store has a different sale or discount on items and they have to see how many outfits they can build and which stores offer the best deals. The activity has been personalized with a boy packet and a girl packet.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
☆2 page individual packet for girls and boys for real life shopping percent application
☆An answer key for both the girl’s page and boy’s page

STORY:
Every time I go into the clearance section of a store having a sale, it makes me laugh that they have to post what the prices would be after the discount. Something as simple as 50% off a \$30 sweatshirt should not need to be posted. This is a skill that is greatly lacking in our society (mainly mental math). Therefore, I use activities like this to get my students brains working. Finding deals is something that not only saves you money but makes you a better critical thinker!
