Product Description
The Budget Project gives students 2 options. Either they can create a family budget based on a life situation, or they can create a product to sell and a business budget based on a given financial situation. The project is very detailed and requires students to thoroughly analyze their given situation in order to create a budget. Included are detailed instructions for both the family budget and the business budget, student charts for both budgets, life situations and business situations (some humorous), and rubrics for easy grading of both the family budget and the business budget. The project requires students to convert between percents, fractions, and decimals. It also requires percent of change calculations, markups, sales, and research of actual real-life budgets. The students are required to write a reflection over their project, and they must present their findings to the class in a creative way. Students that choose the business budget need to create a model of the product they are going to sell and must have advertisements for their product. The Budget Project is fun for students, and it has a lot of differentiation built into it with the different starting situations and project options. The Budget Project would be a great quarter-long out of class project, or it could be done in-class over the course of a month. It would work well in a middle school or high school setting and would work as a solo, partner, or group project. If you like this product, you might like the Village Building Project and the Castle Building Project also from Algebrains.
