Product Description
This is an amazing project that allows students to enter into the imaginary workforce and create a life out of it. They will be creating a monthly budget breakdown by choosing things such as a car, house, even a cell phone plan. Every student will have a different job that they will work around ranging from a general surgeon to a dog trainer. It is an awesome way to get the kids thinking about their future while using real world mathematics to make their budget come to life! Kids love this project as they get to get up and move around and really "buy" some awesome things!

Included in this project are 30 different job cards, over 20 different car options, 20 different housing options, and 4 makeshift cell phone plans. Every student will have their own list of directions to complete this project so you as the teacher have very little to do. They will learn by discovery. Also included is a grading spreadsheet that can be used to allow for fast grading of these very individual projects. Just plug in the numbers and your Budget Chart will pop out!

The activity takes around 2 hours to complete but can be shorter or longer depending on class styles and how much time you have to complete. It is an entire breakdown of the Equations and Expressions standards minus Inequalities.
