Even Santa has a budget! Fun, math personal finance holiday project, students create budgets and financial plans for popular holiday (Christmas) characters.
This project is a great way to integrate the math financial literacy and personal finance standards your students have been learning into holiday fun. Students will choose a holiday character and present a budget and financial plan for the character. Once they have completed all of their financial plan groundwork, they will display all of the components on a poster board (or construction paper) and be prepared to present their plan to their client. Print and go holiday fun!
I have included one student's Financial Plan for Santa Claus. I no longer allow them to have good ole St. Nicholas as their client which forces them to be even more creative and use other holiday characters to plan for.
