Students will imagine that they are spending the day shopping for Christmas items. Students search for Christmas Gift ideas that fit each sections criteria. There are 6 parts to the assignment where they search for specific items and then calculate discounts, tax, tip and commission. The final portion of the assignment is a "Potluck" meal for Christmas where the students calculate the unit rate of the price of ham to determine which store has the better deal.
The zip file includes a handout that explains all parts of the assignment. I use this as a rough draft for the final project where students create a google slide presentation or poster. There is a grading rubric for the Final Project, an example google slide presentation, a google slide template that can be uploaded to the students google classroom that allows editing, and google shortened links to options of stores and restaurants the students can use for their research.
