My students loved this unit. I've included lots of great activities including photographs of some of my student projects. Each activity should be self-explanatory. Our students even interviewed owners of local businesses. You can decide how you would like to implement the unit and what activities you would like to use. This is a perfect unit for differentiation in the classroom.
