TEKS 5.10E & TEKS 5.10F
This financial literacy mini unit on balancing budgets includes a reading passage, a foldable concept map for note taking, a balancing budgets math center activity, and a test practice page with standardized test style questions. This unit is designed so that on-level fifth grade students can work on this material independent of the teacher, but will also work great as direct teach and math center material.
Students can learn vocabulary using the reading passage and apply this to the budgeting activity. The budget activity also reinforces decimal addition and subtraction skills by having students draw cards to balance a simple budget.
The test practice page includes five rigorous questions, four multiple choice questions and one open ended question.
